Detroit Grand Prix road closures start today

Road closures start Tuesday for this weekend's Grand Prix in Downtown Detroit.

The closures come as the streets are turned into a 1.645-mile street circuit.

Though the tunnel to Windsor will remain open during the racing event, drivers are urged to give themselves extra time if they need to travel to Canada. The tunnel will only be accessible from I-375, not Jefferson Avenue or the Lodge freeway.

Drivers using the tunnel between May 28 and June 5 must display a dashboard placard provided by the tunnel’s operators. Placards are available at the Windsor and Detroit toll plazas or can be downloaded and printed from the tunnel’s website.
