A traffic accident near milepost 9, just west of Roberts, closed east bound I-94 at exit 4 Wednesday afternoon. Cars were directed off the freeway at exit 4 and could not re-enter I-94 until the Roberts interchange with Highway 65.


The accident occurred in a narrow area in a construction zone, probably contributing to the need to divert traffic off the freeway. It is expected that the lanes will be reopened later Wednesday afternoon. Details of the accident itself were not immediately available
