MONTCALM COUNTY, Mich. — The Michigan Department of Transportation says a stretch of M-66 is flooded in Montcalm and Mecosta counties.

The road is closed between M-46 and M-20 (9 Mile Road), according to a release.  The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office says the stretch of M-66 is closed because of a road issue near Eisenhower Road.

The southbound detour is M-20 west to southbound US-131, according to MDOT.  Drive on 131 to Exit 120 then drive east on M-46 to M-66 south.
