*TRAFFIC ADVISORY* 2019 SUMMER CONCERT SEASON AT DTE ENERGY MUSIC THEATRE

Patrons Urged to Arrive Early and Prepare for Increased Traffic on Roads Due to Reconstruction and Widening of Sashabaw Road and I-75 Projects

May 17, 2019

(DETROIT – May 2019) – Ranked among the top amphitheatres in the world, DTE Energy Music Theatre’s 2019 summer concert schedule will deliver concertgoers an exciting season of the music industry’s top touring acts. With summer also comes construction, and in anticipation of increased traffic due to construction on Sashabaw Road, the I-75 modernization project and other I-75 road and bridge projects, 313 Presents is strongly advising guests to arrive early for this season’s concert lineup.

Sashabaw Road is undergoing reconstruction and widening from three to five lanes from I‑75 to just south of Clarkston Road in Independence Twp. Information and updates can be found at: www.rcocweb.org/469/Sashabaw-Road-I-75-to-Clarkston-Road.

Also throughout the duration of the 2019 concert season, I-75 will be under construction from Coolidge Highway to 13 Mile Road as Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) continues its work on the I-75 modernization project (www.modernize75.com). 

MDOT is also repairing 21 bridges on I-75 between South Boulevard and Baldwin Road. Both directions of I-75 may be reduced to a single lane on nights and weekends. More information on I‑75 Road and Bridge Repairs can be found at www.michigan.gov/documents/mdot/I-75_Oakland_Project_brochure_653327_7.pdf

The DTE Energy Music Theatre parking lot will be open by 4:30 p.m. Gates open 90 minutes prior to show time, unless otherwise noted. Please check in on the respective event pages on DTE Energy Music Theatre’s Facebook page to confirm timing.
