North, south I-75 to close at 7 p.m. Monday

Posted: Updated:

(04/14/14) - Two busy Genesee County highways were open Monday afternoon, after Saturday night's storm temporarily closed parts of them.

Strong winds toppled power lines, shutting down both north and south I-75 and I-475, between Hill and Holly Roads.

The highways were open Monday, with the exception of the Dort Highway ramps on I-75 in the Grand Blanc area.

Those openings were only temporary.

Both north and south I-75 will close again Monday around 7 p.m. for additional maintenance. Crews expect to have the roads back open by Tuesday morning.

According to MDOT, the following locations are expected to remain closed with traffic detoured until Tuesday morning:

- Southbound I-75 at US-23 split to Dixie Highway.

- All ramps from M-54 (Dort Hwy) and Holly Road to southbound I-75.

- Northbound I-75 at Dixie Hwy (Oakland County) to the split at US-23.

- All ramps from Dixie Hwy, Holly Road and Dort Hwy to northbound I-75.

- Southbound I-475 at Hill Road (to facilitate I-75 closures)

- M-54 (Dort Hwy) at Grand Blanc Road.
