A portion of the M-10 freeway between Livernois and I-94 in Detroit has been designated as the “Aretha Franklin Memorial Highway.”

“Aretha Franklin was an American icon. She began her career here in the heart of Detroit. Her creativity and voice contributed to our musical and cultural history in Michigan,” said Whitmer. “I’m honored to be able to dedicate a portion of the M-10 freeway to remember Aretha and all she did for our state.”
