All lanes of Southfield Freeway back open after severe flooding closed road

All lanes of the Southfield Freeway (M-39) are back open after being closed for more than 24 hours as floodwaters shut down the roadway in both directions.

Crews worked to pump out the water, which was nearly reaching the Outer Drive overpass at 14 feet.

More rain is expected in Metro Detroit on Thursday night, into Friday morning.

The freeway was closed in both directions at Outer Drive in Allen Park.
