It was a difficult commute this morning for Mid-Michigan motorists.  Freezing rain caused slippery conditions as temperatures hovered around the freezing point.

While areas to our north were slammed with snow,  commuters were slamming their brakes on westbound I-69 for much of the morning.  An accident involving a semi-truck is still causing a hefty backup, and the freeway remains closed at Belsay Road in Burton.

Reports came in to Cars 108 Traffic Watch before 6:00 this morning, and drivers at some points throughout the morning were at a stand-still as far back as M-15 in Davison.

Just before 11:00am, I was at the site of the crash. Crews are still working on removing the truck to restore the traffic flow on I-69, but as of now traffic is still backed up to Irish Road. Keep it locked on Cars 108 for Traffic Watch updates regarding the road closure.
