UPDATE: Traffic is flowing normally after downed power lines shutdown the I-96 earlier today.

ORIGINAL STORY: Both directions of the I-96 are shut down in the Howell.

Eastbound I-96 is shut down at D-19 and westbound I-96 is shut down at Latson Road.

Crews are working to remove a power line that came down across both lanes. The downed line resulted in power outages in the surrounding area including traffic lights.

Traffic is currently being re-routed, but there are significant back-ups reported throughout downtown Howell.

It is unclear how long the closure will last.
