BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Cement slabs that slid off a flatbed truck forced crews to close eastbound M-6 ramp to northbound US-131 in Kent County for more than five hours Thursday.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says the flatbed was taking the loop when it lost its load of prefabricated cement slabs around 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
Authorities shut down the ramp around noon so crews could clean up the mess. A cruiser could be seen blocking the entrance ramp with cones lining the roadway.
MDOT tweeted the ramp had reopened around 5:20 p.m.
