For more than 100 years, the Detroit region’s well-connected transportation infrastructure has served the automotive industry’s supply chain and is well-positioned to become the next transportation logistics hub. With a vastly integrated highway and freeway system, seven international border crossings, five major airports and several airfields, four public transportation authorities, a deep water marine port and eight rail yards, people and goods move easily throughout the region, United States and North America.



  • I-75 runs north from Florida to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
  • I-94 runs west from Port Huron, through Detroit, to Montana.
  • I-96 runs northwest from downtown Detroit to Grand Rapids and Muskegon.
