Crash Investigation Site
Vehicles should be relocated to an investigation site only if safe to drive and only if there have been no injuries.
There aren't many of these sites in Michigan. MDOT selected this one a couple years ago after a study that included traffic congestion and available land. Another study to improve traffic flow on US-23 north of Ann Arbor is considering adding a couple of these sites.
It is true that this eastbound I-94 site won't help westbound traffic (except perhaps to reduce gawker slowdowns), but for a modest outlay it is expected to increase safety and reduce congestion.
