Summary

Significance: The Davison Freeway was the first below-grade limited access highway built in Michigan and the first built in a Michigan city. It was one of the first depressed urban freeways in the United States. It relieved crosstown traffic congestion in Highland Park and Detroit, and served as a model for later Detroit freeways.
Survey number: HAER MI-103
