Worker injured in retaining wall collapse on M-10 at 7 Mile

A worker was injured when a portion of the retaining wall collapsed on the Lodge Freeway at Seven Mile Road Friday night.

The stretch of wall is about a quarter of a mile which collapsed injuring the worker, who suffered minor injuries. The freeway was already scheduled to be closed this weekend for repairs.

"I was sitting on the couch and heard a big boom," said Otis Drake, who lives nearby. "I thought it was an earthquake."

Michigan State Police has closed the freeway to conduct the investigation along with the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Traffic is being re-routed at Eight Mile Road.
