Cass Closures To Continue Friday Following Accident

By Beth Milligan | Oct. 12, 2018

A section of Cass Road frequently utilized by cross-town commuter traffic will remain closed today (Friday) as clean-up work continues following an accident that shut down the corridor Thursday.

A driver of a tanker truck (normally used to transport corn syrup, but empty at the time) crashed his vehicle into a power pole at the intersection of Keystone and Cass roads while attempting to turn south onto Keystone from Cass just before 7:30am Thursday. The single-vehicle crash knocked down the power pole and the attached traffic signal for the intersection. The driver was not injured in the crash, and his vehicle sustained only minor damage. But the accident caused major traffic disruptions Thursday as sections of Keystone and Cass were closed for hours. Keystone reopened by early afternoon, but Cass remained closed near the intersection for the rest of Thursday.

According to the Grand Traverse County Road Commission, Cass will remain closed between Keystone and Broad roads today (Friday) until traffic signal repairs can be completed. "A notice will be distributed once the road is reopened," the Road Commission said in a statement. "Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes to avoid delays."
