Birthday I-696!


It’s a story that began in 1955 and wasn’t finished until 1989. Learn how the “missing link” connecting one side of the Detroit metropolitan area with the other along its 28 mile route was almost halted by a determined little town that we all know and love. Discover the lost homes, streets and businesses that are gone forever. See the construction of the freeway and its massive interchange and hear stories of before, during and after the coming of Michigan Interstate 696 as we celebrate its twenty-fifth birthday at the Pleasant Ridge Historical Commission Speaker Series.
