Monday’s floods may have caused serious damage to Michigan’s busiest highway interchange.
Diane Cross is a Michigan Department of Transportation spokeswoman. She says there are concerns about safety of the I-75 road surface at I-696.
“It looks like the road is fine,” says Cross, “but you can see where the substructure has already eroded away. We’re not sure it can hold any weight.”
Cross says it may take a few days to return the interchange to service, but it could be a week or longer, depending on the extent of the damage.
