Northville Digs Out From Under Nine Inches of Snow
Eight accidents were reported in Northville Township since the storm began.
If you're still digging out of your drive way this Presidents Day, you're not alone.
After about nine inches of snow fell on Northville overnight, some of the roads remain slick and hazardous. Area totals ranged from 9.6 inches in Ann Arbor to 11.1 inches in Burton near Flint to 8.4 inches in Garden City, according storm totals provided by the National Weather Service (NWS).
From when the snow began Sunday to about 2 p.m. today, eight accidents were reported in Northville township, according to the records department. Most calls were for vehicles stranded in the snow.
Roads were closed this morning, and have since re-opened, between Seven and Eight Mile roads on Beck, as well as on Five Mile Road between Sheldon and Beck, records show.
The Novi Police Department issued a Nixle community alert at 2 p.m. cautioning drivers to avoid the intersection of Eight Mile and Beck roads where stranded vehicles and icy roads made for a hazardous mix.
