A gentle reminder that we still have quite a bit of flooding with several road closures still in place. We are also working on several vehicles that are stuck in the water in the area of Grand River and Okemos Rd. MDOT is on scene putting up more barricades to shut down the intersection. As we asked before please do not drive through water over the roadway. It is impossible to know how deep the water is and if there is anything under the surface. Thank you.
This is an updated and more accurate road closure map.
Local traffic may travel down closed roads to reach their destination.
REMEMBER: DO NOT DRIVE THROUGH WATER. You never know how deep it may be or what is underneath the surface.
Grand River Ave is Closed. We still have motorists trying to make it through the Okemos and Grand River Ave intersection. There have been 15 vehicles disabled as a result of driving through this area today. We are fortunate that no one has been injured as a result.
USE CAUTION - FLOODED ROADS.

Do not risk your safety by driving through flooded roads. Vehicles can be swept away by currents that you cannot see. At the very least you will damage your vehicle and the roadway.
