Making Moves

Dearborn has long been a transportation hub, first by water and land, later by rail, air and automobile. The Rouge and Detroit rivers provided water transport to the Great Lakes. Major overland routes included the Sauk Trail (later the Chicago Road, and now Michigan Avenue), followed in the 1830s by the Michigan Central Railroad. Auto and truck traffic on Michigan Avenue, Telegraph Road and 1-94 has connected Dearborn with destinations in all directions. Air transportation first arrived in 1925 at Henry Ford's Dearborn Airport and thrives at nearby Detroit Metro Airport.
