Crashes cause backups on Ann Arbor-area roadways Thursday morning

By Kyle Feldscher

A few crashes on Ann Arbor-area roads were slowing down the morning commute for drivers, dispatchers said Thursday.

Washtenaw County dispatchers said just after 9 a.m. Thursday there were backups after crashes at westbound Interstate 94 and Huron Street in Ypsilanti and eastbound M-14 and Barton Drive in Ann Arbor.

Michigan State Police troopers were on the way to those two crashes and more information was not available. Dispatchers were not sure if vehicles from those crashes were blocking any lanes on the freeways.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a rollover crash on North Territorial Road and Webster Church Road at about the same time Thursday. Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said there were no injuries in that crash.

Dispatchers said deputies were on scene and the crash was not blocking any lanes on the roadway.

It was very slick this morning on that stretch of 94. A little bit of salt first thing this morning would have helped that out a lot, but that is asking for the moon, I know.

We headed east on 94 from Zeeb shortly after 9 am. We were following a salt truck who was spreading salt. The temperature in our car read 7 degrees. Salt is ineffective at that low a temperature. Sand would be a better answer.

Not surprised...some roads north and west of Ann Arbor were pretty slippery too, and many drivers seemed unaware!
