The Detroit Police Department is urging all fans to be ready to head back downtown. If you haven't been down in a few months, the M1-Rail Construction, new development, construction and street closures are expected to create traffic delays and alternate parking arrangements. So plan ahead. These are the streets that are going to be closed:
Brush from Madison to Fisher Service Drive north and south closures
Madison Street will be reduced to one lane west bound from St. Antione to Randolph
Witherell north and south from Montcalm to Adams will be closed with the exception of the Handicap Drop Off
John R from west bound Fisher Service Drive to Montcalm will be closed
East Bound Lafayette from Beaubien to St. Antoine is closed due to construction at the Greektown Casino
North Bound Clifford Ramp to I-75/Fisher Freeway is closed due to the M1-Rail Construction
And you can't just park wherever you want. There are several no parking zones downtown as well:
