Livonia makes up the northwest portion of Wayne County, which is also a part of the metropolitan Detroit area. In fact, Livonia, Michigan is located only about 13 miles from downtown Detroit, and only about two miles from the western Detroit city limits. For this reason, Livonia benefits from much of the transportation infrastructure of Detroit, while traffic congestion and crime are added concerns due to Livonia’s location. Livonia was not incorporated as a city until 1950, but has since been a popular destination for U.S. presidents. Of the last seven presidents, only Barack Obama has not visited the young city. Rather than job transfers, a typical major draw for auto shipping to and from Livonia comes from military serving at nearby installations and students commuting to Detroit universities.
Livonia connects with Detroit in the east via Interstate 96, which also connects the city to western Michigan and cities like Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. Once in Detroit, auto haulers can easily travel north or south by connecting with Interstate 75, or enter Windsor, Canada through the Detroit Windsor Tunnel or Ambassador Bridge. If heading directly south from Livonia, auto shippers will commonly use I-275, connecting with I-75 south of Detroit.
