Advanced signage for the upcoming interchange with the M-39 freeway (Exit 183).  Unlike in neighbouring Ontario, to the best of my knowledge, no U.S. state uses a different sign colours to differentiate local lane signage from that of the express lanes.

Two views looking east as I-96 passes amidst the M-39 interchange.  This four-level stack interchange is certainly the most expansive that is found within the City of Detroit (proper).

M-39, the Southfield Freeway, traverses north-south through the west side of Detroit, connecting Allen Park and Dearborn with Southfield.  Click here for M-39 images.

Just east of the flyover ramps to and from M-39 there is a transfer to the express lanes from the local lanes.  Note the extent of the elevated ramps from M-39: A considerable swath of the City of Detroit was destroyed for this interchange in the 1970s.

This is the view along the I-96 West express lane at the divergence to the ramp to the Southfield Freeway (M-39).  The massive interchange linking the Southfield Freeway to I-96 is visible in the distance.  This pictured interchange is undoubtedly the largest interchange in the City of Detroit.
