The John C. Lodge Expressway (M-10) was built between the early-1950s and in 1953 connected with the Edsel Ford Freeway (I-94.) The Highway runs in a northwesterly direction from downtown Detroit, Michigan, through the suburbs for close to twenty-three miles and ends in West Bloomfield.
The Roadway was initially constructed in segments that also include the James Couzens Highway and the Northwestern Highway. All three thoroughfares were finally named the John C. Lodge Expressway in 1987. Lodge was a politician and the Mayor of Detroit for two terms in the 1920s and later was a City Council member for three decades.
