Michigan Highway 8 is a short fragment of freeway in Highland Park and Detroit, Michigan. Its angle aligns to Detroit street grid's definition of east-west, which is at a bearing of about N 65° E (east-northeast, more or less). Michigan Highway 8 is called the Davison Freeway because the freeway it follows is an upgrade to Davison Avenue. The western end of Michigan Highway 8 is at Interstate 96, and it crosses Michigan Highway 10, Michigan Highway 1, and Interstate 75 before ending. The eastern end occurs as the Davison Freeway fizzles out into Davison Avenue, near Conant Street. The freeway home to Michigan Highway 8 is just shy of five miles long.
My photo of a route marker for Michigan Highway 8 is a junction marker along Michigan Highway 1's northbound side. In terms of textual names, this photo shows a northbound scene on Woodward Avenue as it approaches the Davison Freeway. This photo was taken looking north-northwest in Highland Park, Michigan. The time period was April 2021, during my trip around Detroit and Michigan's Thumb.
