WOODHULL TWP. — A semi truck aflame and an ensuing diesel spill led to an environmental cleanup and closed Eastbound I-69 for nearly five hours Wednesday afternoon.

The incident occurred just east of Woodbury Road, with traffic directed off the Woodbury Road exit near Laingsburg in western Shiawassee County.

Again, why can’t Shiawassee Central Dispatch send out a text notification that the road was closed so I could have been given the chance to find an alternative route instead of setting still for a heck of a long time. This type of ineptness seems to run rampant with the Commissioners and Sheriff’s Department.
