MILFORD TWP. (WWJ) - In western Oakland County, a stretch of Maple Road east of Childs Lake Road remains closed after being washed out Tuesday.

A collapsed drainage pipe under the road and persistent rain proved to be too much for this 30-yard section of gravel road that travels through a marshy area of Milford Township.

Road Commission crews have brought in the heavy equipment as repairs are expected to continue through the rest of the week, weather permitted.

Drivers will have to follow the detour of Wixom of Old Plank Road until the repairs are finished.
