    FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) -
    Several ramps leading to eastbound I-696 are closed Tuesday morning as crews work to clear an overturned tanker.
     
    Traffic has been slowed since the tanker crashed into a ditch near Halstead Road around 1:15 p.m. Monday afternoon.
     
    Crews temporarily closed all lanes early Tuesday morning, but then decided to wait until after rush hour to tow the tanker.
     
    The following ramps will remain closed until the clean-up process is finished:
     
    Northbound I-275 ramp to Eastbound I-696
    Eastbound I-96 ramp to Eastbound I-696
    Ramps from M-5 to Eastbound I-696
    Crews plan to tow the tanker away after 9 a.m.
