MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Transportation held a press briefing Sunday concerning emergency road repairs on I-75 at I-696 in Madison Heights.
The northbound lanes of I-75 in southern Oakland County were closed this weekend for emergency repairs due to a sinkhole.
At the press conference, MDOT officials said the the sinkhole was caused by water that created a void about 90 feet under the I-75 Service Drive. It is unknown how large the void is, but MDOT said they are working to fill the void.
Crews will begin breaking up concrete Monday and rebuilding the road.
The closure is expected last through Wednesday, when the freeway will open to a single lane, but the closure could last longer pending on weather.
