TRAVEL ALERT THURSDAY ONLY: Netroots Nation is happening just down the street from Detcon1 at Cobo Hall. We just found out that Vice-President Joe Biden will be speaking there Thursday afternoon at 3:30 pm. This means that there may be significant traffic disruption in downtown Detroit and along the route of his motorcade. We anticipate more details to be published Thursday morning, and will update this page on alternate routes as soon as we can. If you are flying in on Thursday, there will probably be no delays at the airport because of this, since the vice-president usually flies into Willow Run airport. But there may be some delays en route from DTW to downtown Detroit.

Special Note on I-96

There is a major construction project on I-96 between I-275 and M-24, closing down the entire highway. We recommend you avoid the area as much as possible, and these directions are designed to let you do that. If you cannot avoid I-96 between I-275 and M-24, be aware that the service drive is open for you to drive alongside it. You can enter and exit I-96 at M-24 (Telegraph) and just before I-275 at Newburgh Road.

If you are driving FROM Downtown, taking I-96 West, be aware that to exit on M-24 (Telegraph) you must stay in the Local lanes and avoid the Express lanes.
