We’ve got your back with some clever tips to light up your way and make sure your journey is as epic as it should be.

Northbound I-75 traffic will take US-24 (Dixie Highway) Exit 93 in the village of Clarkston and continue north to I-75 in Genesee County. Southbound I-75 traffic will be detoured in Grand Blanc Township and exit at Dixie Highway/Saginaw Road Exit 106, continuing on Dixie Highway to I-75 in Oakland County. Kindly refrain from depending solely on applications such as Google or Waze, as they might redirect you in the event of heavy traffic.
