"Great street for commuting from Detroit to the North"
Mound Road is a great road to use if you have to commute from the Northern suburbs to Detroit or to 696. It is several lanes wide and moves quickly since the lights are timed well. The traffic is only heavy during rush hour, but it still moves faster than other north-south streets in the vicinity. In some areas there are businesses and shopping areas, and more seem to be built all the time. I use this road when traveling between Sterling Heights and 696 because it is the fastest choice.
