Major problem areas include freeway ramps and bridge underpasses, both of which have been described as “sheets of ice.”
Police were forced to close the ramp from southbound Lodge Freeway to eastbound Davison Friday after rain overnight left the freeways too flooded for vehicles to safely drive through.
Although temperatures are several degrees above freezing, light rain which fell earlier Wednesday morning has led to some icy spots on metro Detroit roads.
Early morning commuters hitting the roads Wednesday found an icy glaze.
The new year is off to a windy, wintry start across Southeast Michigan. Snow is coming down in spots and there is black ice in spots on some roads.
For those hitting the road in the Flint and tri-cities area, beware of black ice Wednesday morning.
