DELTA TWP., MI (WLNS) - A tanker leak has shutdown northbound I-69 at mile marker 73. That's just south of the I-96 west interchange.

The tanker is on the shoulder with a cryogenic leak. About 6,000 pounds leaked. The road will remain closed until a hazmat team is done finding and fixing the leak. The Millett Highway overpass is closed for safety.

The area is expected to stay closed for a couple hours while officials work to fix the leak.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area and seek an alternate route.
