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.”
