Westbound I-94 reopened at Livernois after police search for week-old shell casing

Michigan State Police search westbound I-94 for a shell casing on Friday, July 15.

Drivers heading through Detroit Friday morning were met with a standstill as Michigan State Police shut down I-94 at Livernois to search for a shell casing.

MDOT announced on Twitter that westbound I-94 was closed around 10: 15 a.m. Roughly 15 minutes later, MSP also tweeted about the road closure and offered more details.


According to MSP, the interstate is closed so officers can search for a shell casing for a shooting that happened on the freeway last week.

Around noon, the interstate was reopened. It's not known if police found what they were researching for.
