Local 4's Lauren Podell reports from Milford Township on the collapse of a portion of Maple Road.


The Road Commission for Oakland County closed Maple Road just east of Childs Lake Road in Milford Township when part of the road collapsed Tuesday afternoon.

The road commission is hoping to replace a collapsed drainage pipe under the road this afternoon or evening and then re-open the road. The road remained closed Tuesday night and may not open until as early as Wednesday evening.

During the closure, the detour route is Wixom Road to Pontiac Trail to Old Plank Road and back to Maple Road, and vice versa.
