INDEPENDENCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — To alleviate traffic exiting DTE Energy Music Theatre due to construction on Sashabaw Road, a temporary exit has been added to the grass parking lot located at the northwest area of the venue grounds.

Vehicles parked in the grass lot will be directed to exit west on Clarkston Road to M-15 and proceed approximately three miles to I-75 via M-15.

Other vehicles will be continued to exit on regular routes. Vehicles exiting 33 Bob Seger Drive are directed south on Sashabaw Road to I-75, while vehicles exiting Pine Knob Road are either directed north to exit east on Clarkston Road or follow Pine Knob Road to exit west on Waldon Road to I-75.

A rideshare zone will also be available to ease traffic flow for Uber, Lyft and other rideshares dropping of and picking up guests attending concerts.

Guests are still advised to arrive early for shows as construction continues on Sashabaw Road, the I-75 modernization project and other I-75 road and bridge repairs are being completed.
