ALLEN PARK, Mich. – The Southbound side of the Southfield Freeway (M-39) is closed at Outer Drive due to flooding in Allen Park.
MDOT says the Northbound end will close if flooding persists.
Wayne County said earlier that the Ecorse Creek has overflowed causing surface flooding on roadways. It’s unclear how long the freeway will remain closed.
The freeway flooded in 2019 and was closed for days following heavy rains.
