ANN ARBOR, MI – A pothole in the center lane of westbound I-94 between Zeeb and Baker roads in Washtenaw County is the culprit in several flat tires and traffic incidents this week.
Work crews were working to fix the pothole the afternoon of Friday, Jan. 5, said Emily Kizer, communications director for the Washtenaw County Road Commission.
The pothole was about 2 feet by 10 inches, and measured 8 inches deep, Kizer said.
The Michigan Department of Transportation also posted notifications about the ongoing work.
The work closed some lanes of westbound I-94 even as more reports came into local law enforcement agencies about damage and vehicles that left the roadway Thursday night.
The Michigan State Police’s Brighton Post said troopers responded to at least five traffic incidents Thursday night related to unknown debris in the roadway. There was no reported injuries, though some vehicles did suffer damage.
