  • low underpass on I94

    We came through Detroit yesterday on I94 and there is an under pass marked 13.5 in the right hand lane. We were in the center lane and had no problem.

    There are poor signs to the bridge because of the construction. One sign had keep left with what looked like some graffitti on it, the keep left should have been covered completly.

    13.5 is legal height and most suites are less than 13'.

        Just measured my Elite Suites at 13'6". I would be afraid to go through anything posted at 13'10'' just in case someones measurements were a little off.

          Last week I went through two posted at 12'9". Not an interstate highway but was a US highway.
          I instinctively ducked in my seat! My measurement is 12'6". We should all take an accurate measurement and post it on the dash.
          Lay a 10' 2X4 across the high point which is probably the AC. Measure the ends to ground on a level site or parking lot.
          Easy job and well worth the time.

              When we bought our first one the dealer said 'dont go under anything less than 13'6". Last year we pulled into a gas station with 12'5" marked on the roof and cleared. I finally got around to actually measuring it this year and its 12'7" to the top of the front A/C hooked up. I think the gas station had it wrong.

                The low underpass is in the last 5 miles before the bridge to Canada. My rig was 13 ft 6 in with our 09 Chev. I have not measured with the 2011 GMC but we were ok in the center lane. In Canada you will be OK at 4.2 meters

                    drop by any day but Wednesday. There is an off site entertainment that day so no one will be here. We are on 7th street site 20

                      We bought the Rand- Mcnally GPS it has a height and width section. I was using it the other day and went down a road with a 11ft bridge. I didn't have the MS well the warning started 1/2 mile away to turn around. I similed and thought money well spent.
