I-675 at Downtown Saginaw.
I-675 begins on the east side of Saginaw at an interchange with Interstate 75 and then heads west into the town of Saginaw. The highway has 2×2 lanes and leads past the center of Saginaw, where one crosses the Saginaw River of the same name. After this, I-675 veers north and terminates again on I-75 north of Saginaw.
In the mid-1950s, planning began for a motorway to open up Saginaw. At the time, it was clear that I-75 would run a little wider east of Saginaw. Construction of the highway began in 1969 and the entire highway is believed to have been opened to traffic in one go on October 22, 1971.
Up to 32,000 vehicles use the highway daily.
Interstate 696 at Michigan
|End||St. Clair Shores|

I-696 at Gratiot Avenue.
The highway begins in Novi, a western suburb of Detroit at a major interchange with Interstate 96, Interstate 275, and State Route 5. The highway runs from here in 2×4 lanes east, through the suburb of Farmington Hills. This city has about 80,000 inhabitants. State Route 10 joins in the Southfield suburb, which leads to downtown Detroit. Quite a lot of east-west traffic is already turning towards downtown here. After this, the motorway also has 2×3 lanes and is partly below ground level. In Oak Park, there are two city parks on the highway. Not far after that, the highway again has 2×4 lanes and in the suburb of Madison Heights theInterstate 75, the Chrysler Freeway leading from Detroit toward Flint. One then reaches the suburb of Warren, with 140,000 inhabitants the largest suburb of Detroit. In St. Clair Shores, I-696 ends at Interstate 94, the highway from Detroit to Port Huron on the Canadian border.
The original Interstate Highways plan also envisioned an east-west route through the northern suburbs of Detroit. Construction on Interstate 696 began in 1961, and on July 20, 1963, the first 7 miles from I-96 in Farmington to Orchard Lake Road were opened. Six months later on December 2, 1963, it opened an extension to the Northwestern Highway, where it now intersects with the Lodge Freeway (SR-10).
On January 5, 1966, the state of Michigan obtained federal approval for the remainder of the route through Warren to I-94 at St. Clair Shores. This route was controversial and did not open until January 4, 1979 between I-75 and I-94. Then the central section had to be constructed west of I-75. The construction of this part started in 1984 and was finally opened to traffic on December 14, 1989.
The highway is formally called the Walter P. Reuther Freeway, named after a union leader in the auto industry. The highway was often referred to as ‘The Reuther’, but the designation I-696 becomes more common in the 21st century.
In 2023-2024, 18 kilometers of I-696 will be completely redeveloped between I-275 and Evergreen Road. In this project, the entire concrete pavement was removed and everything was newly laid, including reconstruction of a number of exits. The project cost $275 million.
