After a semi truck traveling on US-23 struck an overpass at 8 Mile Road, parts of both roadways were closed down. The northbound lanes of US-23 at 8 Mile near Whitmore Lake have reopened this morning, but 8 Mile is closed where it passes over the freeway.

Police say the overpass was one of several struck by an arm that was sticking up on the back of the truck.

Northfield Township police say the 8 Mile Road bridge above US-23 will be shut down for the next three months while it undergoes repairs. 

There is no word yet on any injuries from the Thursday morning accident.

There's no word if the driver will face any charges.
