We're 30 days out from the NFL Draft, and certain streets will start closing this weekend in preparation for the event. 

Anyone can come to the draft - for free -but should register with the NFL One Pass App

The NFL Draft Theatre will go up at the site of the future Development at Cadillac Square, next to Campus Martius Park. From Friday, March 29 to Sunday, May 7, these downtown streets will be closed for the Theatre and Draft:

  • Randolph Street between Macomb Street and Fort Street
  • Monroe Street between North Woodward Avenue and Randolph Street
  • Farmer Street between Randolph and Bates (Garage access only)
  • Bates Street (no through traffic)
  • Farmer from Randolph to Bates

 Additional road closures will be announced in phases.

How should you plan on getting around? Leave the car at home (or in a garage away from downtown) and take our transit options! Here's what to expect:

  • The People Mover will run 24 hours, from April 25 through April 28, with the goal of trains every 5 minutes. All 13 stops will be open and it's free. The Millender and Financial Center stops are closest to draft entry points.
  • The Qline will have limited service while set-up is taking place, and full service for the event. It will run Monday-Saturday 8:00 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Between April 20 and 30, it will stop at Little Caesars Arena, so visitors can walk to entry points from there.
  • SMART will have special shuttles from different places around the region (like Great Lakes Crossing). Locations and times will be announced closer to the event.
  • A new airport shuttle is running from downtown to DTW. The DAX Airport Express has started. The D2A2 shuttle also runs to Ann Arbor.
  • DDOT will have modified stops closer to downtown, which will be announced closer to the event. 
  • Shuttle services will also be available at various locations downtown to be announced.

We'll have more details as they become available.
