SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Morning commuters were greeted with quite the mess Tuesday after crews shutdown part of a busy interstate in Saginaw County. 

MDOT crews closed southbound I-75 shut down this morning between the Saginaw Road and Zilwaukee exits. 

The closure began about 10 a.m. Officials initially said the closure would last 15 minutes, but at 11 a.m. photos from viewers showed traffic in the area was still at a standstill. Traffic was moving smoothly by 11:30 a.m. 

The southbound ramp to I-675 was also closed so crews could reroute the southbound lanes onto the northbound side.
