Moving to Michigan?
Are you moving to Michigan soon? Here is a little information about Michigan. Michigan is a great state to live in. There is so much to do and it has so many recreation opportunities. But that is just one of the good features of this great state. One of the best home buyer tips about metro Detroit is about our extensive highway system. Our traffic in Metro Detroit is no where near as bad as Chicago, Los Angeles, or New York. Our rush hours is probably like their non rush hours travel times. Yes we have bumper to bumper traffic during rush hour, but most of the time our traffic moves along good. Of course during orange barrel (construction season) we do have traffic delays because of road construction.
We have several major freeways in Southeastern Michigan. I-75 runs north to south through downtown Detroit. I-96 and I-94 run east to west. I-94 runs on the south side of Metro Detroit and runs through the city and then turns north. I-96 runs to the north of Metro Detroit and runs from west side to the state to Detroit. I-275 circles around the western suburbs. US -23 is to the far west running from Toledo Ohio through Ann Arbor & Brighton to Flint.
When moving to Michigan you will want to use map-quest or google maps to map your drive time. Once you determine some of the potential cities you like map them. What we can tell you about Metro Detroit highways and traffic is that once the weather changes it does slow down traffic. Rain will add on about a 30% increase in drive time. For some reason it seems that people forget how to drive when it rains. When it snows traffic slows down too. So when it snows it will add to your drive time.
