TRAFFIC ALERT: U.S. 131 ramp to M-6 shut down

UPDATE - The ramp has reopened.

CUTLERVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Michigan State Police troopers are shutting down the ramp from southbound U.S. 131 to westbound M-6 because of a fuel spill.

Troopers say the spill was caused when a tanker was involved in an accident on the ramp.

Grand Rapids and Cutlerville firefighters are responding to assist in the clean-up of the fuel.

Dispatchers do not know how long the ramp will be closed. 

Drivers wanting to go westbound on the M-6 Paul Henry Freeway are advised to get off the highway at the 54th Street SW exit of U.S. 131, take 54th/Gezon Parkway to Byron Center Ave. SW, then take Byron Center back to the freeway.

Made in Michigan - GM Components Holdings

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM) - For more than a century, when you heard "Made in Michigan", you proudly thought of the auto industry and by extension, General Motors.

For generations, Michigan proudly called itself the "the automotive capital of the world." The state was home to dozens of General Motors plants and many of them were in West Michigan. Then came the big crash.  When the auto industry started to collapse roughly three years ago, plants began to close and people began to lose their jobs.

Most West Michigan residents remember all too well the local fallout, including the former GM Stamping Plant, closed in 2009 and demolished earlier this year. It is just one of the many causalities of US auto industry's recent collapse.

The City of Wyoming Warns Residents of Unnecessary Water Service Line Coverage Offer

The City of Wyoming Warns Residents of Unnecessary Water Service Line Coverage Offer

The City of Wyoming has received notification that HomeServe, an independent home repair company, will again target Wyoming residents with an offer for unneeded insurance coverage.

Residents should disregard any offer of insurance to cover water service line repair or replacement. The coverage is unnecessary as Wyoming residents are not held responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing the water line in case of damage.

As a benefit to residents, the City of Wyoming maintains typical residential single family or duplex water services less than 100 feet in length all the way to the water meter inside the home. The City responds to water line emergencies 24 hours a day and will complete the utility repair at no cost to the resident. The City also performs all yard restoration work as soon as weather permits.
