Pavement buckling, cracking in River Rouge

DTE Energy says it is suspected soil failure on storage lot

This is not far from an area in Southwest Detroit where the ground buckled and bloated, causing a building to collapse.

RIVER ROUGE, Mich. – There’s concern about a stretch of land in a storage yard in River Rouge where the pavement has buckled and cracked along Pleasant and Campbell streets.

This is 3 miles from where pavement buckled and caused the partial collapse of a building in mid-September in Southwest Detroit.

An 8-inch gas line has been ruptured, causing four businesses to lose their gas feed.

Here is a statement from DTE Energy:

“DTE Energy was alerted to a suspected soil failure on a storage lot in River Rouge that caused the ground to heave, creating concern about the integrity of underground infrastructure for several utilities, including DTE Gas.”
