Interstate 675 (I-675) is an interstate highway in the U.S. state of Michigan. I-675 is a convert|7.73|mi|km|2|adj=on|lk=on loop route through downtown Saginaw as I-75 passes on the east side of the city.

One additional reason for I-675's existence, besides improved access to downtown Saginaw, was to serve as a bypass of the former drawbridge carrying I-75 across the Saginaw River in the nearby city of Zilwaukee, until the present Zilwaukee Bridge opened in 1988. The former drawbridge allowed navigation up the Saginaw River for a General Motors plant located there. The present Zilwaukee Bridge is much higher, allowing navigation without the need for a drawbridge.

Route description

I-675 splits from I-75 on the eastern side of Saginaw, turning west going to Downtown Saginaw. It runs on the northern end downtown, crossing the Saginaw River to an interchange with M-58. From there it turns northward, merging back into I-75 north of the Zilwaukee Bridge.

History

On 1969-01-24, MDOT assumed the freeway loop through Saginaw into the state highway system. This loop, designated I-675 would not be completed until 1971-10-22. At this time, the highway routings through Saginaw replaced by the new I-675 freeway were turned back to local jurisdiction and removed from the state highway system.

Exit list

The entire route is in Saginaw County, Michigan.
