A Macomb County worker patches potholes on eastbound I-94, north of 8 Mile in St. Clair Shores, Tuesday.

St. Clair Shores — Drivers early Tuesday had to deal with flat tires after running into a rough patch of road on eastbound Interstate 94 and the 10 Mile ramp in St. Clair Shores. 

A pothole is believed to have caused the problems. About a dozen drivers were lined up on or near the ramp around 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to reports. Authorities were forced to close the ramp.

Michigan State Police said around 7 a.m. that the ramp will remain closed until the road at the ramp is fixed, and announced about 8:20 a.m. that the pothole had been patched and the ramp re-opened.
