We all love to complain about Michigan’s roads and here is another Michigan road horror story to add to our ever-expanding lists.

The northbound lanes of I-75 in southern Oakland County are closed from I-696 to 12 Mile road.

These lanes are closed through the weekend for emergency repairs due to a sinkhole on the service drive of I-75. Officials are investigating to determine if any damage has been done to Interstate 75 before allowing it to reopen. As of now, there is no official date for the northbound lanes to reopen. However, a crew is working on repairing the sinkhole, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation.

MDOT has informed the public that the sinkhole was naturally caused by natural water in the ground and that the hole started forming around 5 A.M. on Friday, July 30th, 2021. The wall that divides the service drive and I-75 has also been damaged from the natural sinkhole and has been removed for repairs as well.

Make sure to travel safe and not only watch out for the Michigan pothole but for sinkholes as well!
