CASCO TOWNSHIP, Mich. – An overturned semi has led to a lengthy cleanup process, one that is expected to shut down a highway off ramp in Allegan County.

It happened on NB I-196 at exit 26, that’s at 109th in Casco Township.

We’re told the semi flipped over on the ramp, and the cleanup is expected to take the majority of the day.  Part of the problem involves hazardous materials, but it’s not clear if that is just a fuel spill or a larger issue at the scene.
