GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Even though snowfall amounts were minor in Grand Rapids, traffic in the metro area was at a standstill Wednesday evening.

Around 4:50 p.m. south US -131 near Market Street in downtown Grand Rapids was down to one lane due to a crash.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) reports East M-6 near Kalamazoo Avenue was also down to one lane because of a crash.

Our FOX 17 Tower cam showing US-131 at I-196 (picture attached to story) shows a long line of traffic waiting to get through downtown.

Numerous spinoffs in the Kalamazoo area were reported Wednesday.  That’s where more snow accumulated during the day.

MDOT reported around 5:36 p.m. that east I-196 at 44th Street was also experiencing delays due to a crash.

A traffic dispatcher with the Kent County Road Commission told FOX 17 Traffic Reporter Robb Westaby they plan to have a full complement of plows on area roads tonight.
