DETROIT (AP) - The state says a section of Interstate 75 in downtown Detroit that was shut down after a tanker truck exploded and caught fire is expected to reopen on Saturday.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reported the updated timeline amid repairs following Sunday morning’s crash of a tanker truck carrying 9,000 gallons of unleaded fuel.

The crash forced the closing of I-75 at I-375. The I-75 northbound ramp was getting repairs to the ramp and barrier walls. The Michigan Department of Transportation earlier said the roadway could reopen late Friday to traffic.

The 36-year-old driver wasn’t hurt, but was cited for careless driving.
