UPDATE: I-96, I-496 Reopened After Accidents Cleared

By  | 

Interstate 96, just north of Saginaw Highway, was reopened at 11 a.m. Thursday after being closed for a couple of hours.

Multiple accidents forced the closure of at least two of the three lanes of westbound Interstate 96 during morning rush hour.

Interstate 496 at Lansing Road was reopened a short time later. It had been closed in both directions because of accidents.

The ramp from Lansing Road onto I-496 was also reopened.

Nearly whiteout conditions made rush hour visibility near zero at times.

The causes of the accidents haven't been released and we haven't had any reports of injuries.
