Police say an 87-year-old driver was at fault for a crash and tanker truck fire that closed a stretch of I-94 last month.
The problem should be repaired by 5 a.m. Friday morning ….
Police say the primary cause was drivers traveling too fast for road conditions.
Spokeswoman Diane Cross said that eastbound between M-39 and Livernois will be drivable just after 6 p.m. following a tanker explosion which damaged the roadway on Wednesday.
Crews poured new cement along a roughly 150-foot stretch of I-94 eastbound at Wyoming on Friday, the site of a tanker accident and fire that damaged the freeway on Wednesday.
A section of I-94 in Detroit will be closed in both directions this weekend in Detroit so crews can work on the M-1 Rail project.
The tanker truck burned for nearly two hours following a crash Wednesday near the Detroit-Dearborn border.
Smoke could be seen billowing from the scene of a fiery crash and explosion involving a tanker truck.
Emergency repairs are being made to a busy freeway interchange in Detroit.
Lt. Mike Shaw says that several people were in a car traveling along westbound I-94 near Mt. Elliott St. in Detroit around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning when shots rang out and the driver was struck.
