DETROIT (WXYZ) - The Lodge Freeway has reopened after being shut down for hours following a water main break Thursday that caused major flooding.
The water main break was actually at Fenkell and Petoskey in a nearby neighborhood. From the break, water gushed onto nearby streets and then rushed down a freeway ramp, catching motorists off-guard.
Friday morning city officials reported it was a 24 inch pipe that broke. They say a gas main also ruptured but was quickly fixed.
Petoskey road is partially collapsed at this time.
