On the Way to Grand Rapids

One of the reasons why I didn't have a ton of time on Saturday was because my dad and I were going to the Grand Rapids Griffins game.  We met in Fowlerville and he drove over to Grand Rapids.  On the way, I was treated to this sunset over I-96.
Interstate 96 is completely enclosed within the State of Michigan.  It starts near Muskegon on the west side of the State and ends at the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit.

Construction on I-96 began in 1957 and was going to be a replacement for US-16 which was finally decommissioned in 1962.  Construction for the most part was completed in 1962 but it took another 15 years to complete the sections through Detroit.  It also known as the Jeffries or Rosa Parks in Detroit.
