The section that has been closed for about two years is open in theory, I don't drive it so I have no idea. There has been problems that have resulted in I-75 north bound being closed off and on above 8 mile road due to a cascading number of pot holes and canyons. Here is the link for the roads in Michigan after it opens just click on the cone icon.

Hi Guys:
I'm coming from Canada across the Bridge and DOWN I-75. Can you tell me if the I-75 south off the bridge is open now. It wasn't last year (or the year before) and it was a major pain. I need to go as far South as Northline road. From the map link it looks like Southbound I-75 might be ok now but now northbound has problems. So going home might be a problem.
Local knowledge would be very helpful.

Thanks

Check out the MDOT map The cone top left corner for current construction. I-94 will have closures on the weekend in Detroit for bridge removals. I-696 has lane closures both directions in spots between I-94 and I-75 I-75 has lane closures between about 15 mile and I-696 It shouldn't be to bad on the weekend.

OK. Thanks. As far as I can see right now on the map it appears open. No big deal really I'll take what comes up.

Are you entering the USA at Port Huron or the Windsor/Detroit Tunnel or the Ambassador Bridge?

Windsor / Detroit bridge. Hence my question about access to I75 south. It has been closed for two years.

Hey dsage,
OK. I didn't want to get into anything if you were going via either Sarnia or the Windsor Tunnel.
If you have any worries or unhappy thoughts about I-75, you could take W. Jefferson or often called Jefferson W. It's about the same time, and very close to the same distance, much less traffic, and takes you sorta along the river and through some interesting areas. Once in Wyandotte you are just 1-1/2 blocks from the NAMES SHOW at the YACK ARENA.

To access it, get as far right as practical at US Customs, and really far right for the Toll Booth, and stay way to the right as you leave the pay toll. You stay OFF any access to the free-ways. Keep way way to the right onto a surface street that takes you to Bagley St.. Take Bagley east-bound for a few blocks to 16th or 18th and turn right, heading back parallel to the Bridge. Go about three blocks to a STOP sign at the T-intersection with FORT St.. Turn right on Fort St.. Take any one of the next few streets to the left. In one block the T-intersection STOP sign is W. Jefferson. Turn right, relax and have fun for 10 miles.

Don't buy out the place before I get a chance, but have fun.

Hi Brian:
Thanks for the instructions. I'll map it out. Co-incidentally we did almost exactly that last year. Except we just followed Fort St. out to Southgate. We got a bit confused a couple of times with that route but it wasn't too bad. I recognized Fort because it is close to our hotel and so just followed it until I recognized things.
<edit> I looked at your route and it seems a bit more direct to the arena.
Thanks again.

Grasshopper here,
Just drove up, Thursday the 25th from Indianapolis. I-75 was clear going to Detroit. Had a hotel in Windsor, Canada and that was a disaster. The hotel wasn’t all that nice, so I canceled. Going over the Ambassador Bridge wasn’t fun either. Huron road is botched up with construction and add to that trucks and you could be in for a long wait. I found a hotel in Auburn Hills, Michigan and the I-75 north of Detroit for 15 miles is also a disaster in both lanes. One side is under construction, so you’re on the other side, 2 lanes north and 2 lanes south. I’ll see what it’s like tomorrow as I’m going to The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn.

Well the show floor was filling up with exhibitors and vendors. If you are coming in on either Saturday or Sunday make sure you check the MDOT map of construction projects before leaving home Use the cone icon upper left corner on the map page as there is some week end only work and closures
