M-5 Split for Grand River and M-5 in Farmington  Topic is solved

Postby Gazoo4U » Thu May 01, 2014 7:33 pm


I was traveling NE on M-5/Grand River Ave to go on a quest for Greene's Hamburgers in Farmington. For those that have been on this road the left two lanes is the beginning of the Brighton-Farmington freeway while Grand River Ave (where I was going) follows the right two lanes.

Though I knew where to go, my Waze directions gave no indication that I had to stay to the right to remain on Grand River as the freeway is drawn as a left hand junction off of the straight Grand River Avenue.

It would be easy to fix by making it an equal split, but I don't have Level 3 access.

So would one of you do it, so before someone headed for Farmington or West Bloomfield traveling in the left lane accidentally finds themselves funneled into that massive M-5/I-275/696/96 interchange.

Based on the signage, I added a "wayfinder" so that you should get additional instructions for both splits. Once the map updates, the right should now provide a "Stay to the right at Grand River Ave[nue] / Farmington", and the left should state "Stay to the left at M-5 W[est] to I-96 W[est] / Lansing".
