A few lanes are blocked off while they are adding tracks for a trolley. Traffic is not to bad though. It is always fun to take a drive down Woodward to see the old downtown buildings.

Great way for just about anybody of any age to spend the day outdoors. Bring your camera to take pictures of someone elses's car. If you are going to sit along the road prepare with chair, umbrella, cooler,sun glasses, etc. Portapotties seem to be everywhere....More

Completely torn-up with only half of the street open, it is still a pleasure to cruise this famous drive. Home to the Fox Theater, Comerica Field, Orchestra Hall, and numerous other attractions, this is a must drive for all Detroit visitors. Currently, a tram line...More
