Southbound I-275 closed at I-94 due to fatal crash

Update, 12:20 p.m. — MDOT says the crash has been cleared and all lanes in the area are open. 

Southbound I-275 is currently closed at I-94 due to a fatal crash, Michigan State Police say.

MSP said a rollover crash happened just before 5:30 a.m., causing a person to be ejected and killed from an involved vehicle.

MDOT on Twitter said at 10 a.m. that the closure estimate would be about two hours, but due to the circumstances of the fatal crash, traffic could be closed for longer.

Motorists should plan on an alternate route through the area. Check the MDOT Twitter page for updates to local traffic and incidents.

Roads were slick this morning due to low temperatures and could continue to be throughout the day as temps will remain near freezing. Drive with extra caution.
