Caption
Extension of the Willow Run Expressway west beyond U-23 (Carpenter Rd.) and around Ann Arbor presents new traffic problems. Note the new side approaches and exits. West of this, is Stone School Rd. (not shown), where the overpass has been completed, and farther west on State Rd., work has begun on an overpass to be completed in October. When completed, the Expressway will reach US-12, west of Ann Arbor. State traffic counts show that traffic during an average day on US-23 near the Expressway totals 12,000 cars. There are 6,300 automobiles traveling on the Expressway near its US-23 terminus, the same survey disclosed. Completion date for the US-23 overpass is Nov. 15, 1955.
