|A pair of guide signs, one
on each side of the roadway, stand 0.5 mile from the south end of I-275,
each showing a schematic of the where the ramps from south I-275 go at
the I-75 exit. Traffic heading to north I-75 will need to exit, as
the two southbound lanes for I-275 default onto south I-75.

|After a 6 mile multiplex with I-96, north I-275 comes to an end at one of the most complex interchanges in the state of Michigan. I-96, I-696, and M-5 are all a part of this interchange, which covers nearly 2 square miles on the Novi - Farmington Hills border in southern Oakland County. There are five approaches to this interchange - clockwise from the western approach: east I-96, south M-5, west I-696, west M-5, and west I-96 / north I-275 - and numerous ramps connecting every which way. In due course, photos showing navigation around this interchange from the different approaches and the different ramps will be featured here for the northern terminus of I-275, as well as on the I-696 page for its western terminus.|
|This sign truss is located
on west I-96 / north I-275, 0.25 mile from the main exit ramp to I-696 /
M-5. West I-96 maintains two lanes, while the exit ramp for I-696
/ M-5 gets three lanes.

|This is the perspective of
east I-96 as it enters into the massive interchange. The I-275
designation begins when east I-96 merges in with the ramps from west
I-696 and either direction of M-5. However, I-696 officially
starts at this point.

|Guide signs such as this one
that list the next two or three interchanges, and their distances from
the point of the sign, are common within the freeway system of the
Metropolitan Detroit area. This one is on west I-696, just west of
the US 24 /
in Southfield. It is the first mention of the upcoming interchange
with I-96, I-275, and M-5, 6.25 miles ahead.
