I guess it's becoming the norm now to find I-96 flooded because of water main breaks. Didn't this just happen last year?

I believe this is the third water main break on the service drive around Inkster Road in recent years.

Ironic that it came days after this article was published:

You will actually notice there are multiple areas along I-96 (particular in Livonia, that I've noticed) where the ground and shoulder pavement is perpetually wet. The catastrophic failures are one thing - but one can only imagine how many "small" leaks there are.

I really think that span may be in dire need of replacement. Maybe some of the stimulus money can and will be used to do so.
