DETROIT -

Crews with the Michigan Department of Transportation made emergency repairs to a large hole that appeared Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 75.

Only one lane of southbound I-75 at Goddard Road was open for hours due to the hole that was about 3-feet wide.

Authorities said the interstate wouldn't fully reopen until after 9 p.m. Tuesday.
