Traffic Resumes on M-14 After Car Fire Halts Traffic Flow

Car fire halts traffic flow on M-14 early Monday morning, causing significant delays and disruptions. The incident occurred at approximately 6:45 a.m., just past the I-275 junction, an area already burdened with lane closures due to ongoing construction work.

This unfortunate event led to severe traffic congestion, affecting not only M-14 but also causing backups on I-275 and I-96.

The car fire erupted suddenly, sending plumes of smoke into the air and creating a hazardous situation for commuters. Emergency services responded promptly, working diligently to extinguish the blaze and ensure the safety of everyone involved.

The fire’s location, compounded by existing construction, exacerbated the traffic situation, leading to significant delays for morning commuters.

Authorities acted swiftly to manage the situation, diverting traffic and providing updates to the public. Despite their efforts, the incident led to extended delays and frustration among drivers caught in the congestion.

After hours of work, the scene was cleared, and traffic began to move again. By late morning, the major arteries of M-14, I-275, and I-96 gradually returned to normalcy. However, the ripple effects of the morning incident lingered, with residual delays affecting traffic patterns throughout the day.
