*UPDATE: The highway has now re-opened*

I-75 was closed in both directions near Troy today for a downed power line. Northbound I-75 is closed at 12 Mile Road, and Southbound I-75 is closed at 14 Mile Road.

ClickonDetroit is reporting that the power line is resting on a vehicle, but there are no injuries reported.

Our very own traffic reporter, Chris Monroe is stuck in this mess on his way home from Detroit. He called me this afternoon and said people are getting out of their cars and walking around on the highway.

Chris called around 2 pm today and said he had been stopped for around 30 minutes with no end in sight. What a crappy way to spend a day off work.

If you are headed to or from Detroit today, you will definitely want to seek an alternate route.
