Wires down causes all I-75 lanes and I-475 lanes to close near Grand Blanc Twp

Posted:
GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP (WJRT) -

(04/12/14) - Severe weather whipped through Mid-Michigan very quickly Saturday, evening leaving a wave of damage in its path.

Down power lines and a pole cut off portions of I-75 Saturday just before 8 p.m. Grand Blanc Township police say northbound and southbound I-75 from Hill Road to Dixie Highway will be closed until crews clean up the damage. Along with that portion of I-75, north and south 475 are also closed in that area. All of the traffic is being diverted to US-23. The closure is expected to last for the next 10 hours.

At one point, police tell us that a car was trapped under the fallen power lines. Everyone in the car made it out safely.
