M-1 Streetcar Construction Detours:

Woodward Avenue remains open for traffic but travel lanes are reduced throughout the area.

Please note that both the I-94 East and Westbound exits for Woodward Avenue/John R are closed due to Woodward bridge construction for the M-1 Streetcar project.

For M-1 RAIL construction updates, please visit and sign up for our M-1 RAIL Weekly Update e-newsletter and text alerts.  



Parking is $7 in the adjacent Museum lot on Kirby St. (between Woodward and Cass Avenues), as available.
