Being within a 20 mile radius of Plymouth would potentially put you in Detroit or Ann Arbor, or about a dozen other cities!

It's only about 20 minutes from Plymouth to Detroit and 20 minutes from Plymouth to Ann Arbor.

Rush hour traffic on I-94 between Ann Arbor and Detroit can be ok to pretty bad depending on which direction you are going at which time. Rain or snow during rush hour yea your probably looking an an hour. Blizzard, ice storm, hard rain, dense fog, very bad accident, ect during rush hour= hell on earth. It's not all the time that it takes almost 2 hours to get from Ann Arbor to Detroit but when it's something major effecting traffic during rush hour it's not uncommon. But the traffic is usually ok for the most part between the two outside of rush hour. But that may change once they start reconstructing the entire I-94 west of downtown all the way to Ann Arbor I believe. I forgot when they said they were going to start but I can imagine that is not going to be a great commute during rush hour.

Default Relocation Update

Hello all - I just wanted to send a quick update. We ended up finding a gorgeous home in Plymouth and we absolutely LOVE IT HERE! Anything and everything is no more than a 5/10 minute drive. It takes me 25 minutes to get downtown D for work - maybe 35 with stop and go traffic. I take 275 to 96 and it's a straight shot.

There is always something to do. Downtown Plymouth is amazing. We frequent Detroit as much as we can, the restaurants are awesome. We've had NO problems walking in/around the city and have enjoyed every minute of it. No regrets what-so-ever. Thanks again!

It's only about 20 minutes from Plymouth to Detroit and 20 minutes from Plymouth to Ann Arbor.

Maybe if you do 150 on the freweway portion of the commute. Mty brother took 40-50 minutes when he made the commute for five or six years.

DTW is not Detroit, you still have 20 minutes to go from there.

Your brother drives like an 80 year old lady.

It depends on traffic but on most days you can get from Plymouth to Grand Circus Park in 30 minutes. City limits, 20 easy.

I could get from Plymouth Road (in Ann Arbor) near US 23 to Wayne State campus in under 1 hour, easily - as long as I left just before rush hour.

I can easily believe Plymouth to Detroit (city limits) within 20 minutes, due to Plymouth's proximity to I-96. A lot of people forget about that freeway, and take I-94 which needlessly takes you way out of your way.

UNless you hit only green lights, it will take you 10 minutes to get on the freeway. Another five to ten to get off, get to parking and park. It definitely takes more than 5 minutes on the freeway to go form Plymouth to Detroit. Google has it at 27 minutes with no traffic and no consturction. .

A lot of the suburbs in Plymouth are less than 5 minutes away from 96, particularly around Sheldon and Ann Arbor Trail.

Traffic heading into the city isn't exactly like heading into Los Angeles; often there is no congestion at all, even in rush hour. At least that's how it used to be. Maybe it's different now.

It just depends where you are going in Detroit.

Even on Google, from downtown Plymouth to Grand Circus Park it's a 32 minute prediction.

So if you are a slow driver, it may take you longer.

If you are a normally aggressive driver you are looking at less than half an hour.
