I am heading to Wild Game tomorrow night. I will be heading down I-94 coming from Port Huron Way. I want to park on the Roof Top @ Cobo.

Question is, how do I get there? Mapquest is no help and I tried the parking information Matt has posted, yet it does not talk about Cobo.

If someone could give me brief step by step directions it would be appreciated.

Thank You.

You need to get yourself to FORT STREET in downtown Detroit. Once you're there, assuming you're coming from the east, you'll need to look for THIRD STREET. You'll want to turn SOUTH on THIRD STREET, from whatever direction you're heading on FORT. Once you're on Third street, follow it for about a block, then it will make a 90 degree bend to your left. Once you've made the 90 degree turn, the spiral ramp to the Cobo Roof Parking Deck is located directly on your right side. You'll pay at the roof. It's usually cheaper if you arrive before 6 I think.

Hope this helps.

That does help a lot a bit.

I am just not sure how to get to that point!

Get off at M10 (Lodge Freeway towards DOWNTOWN) and then exit at the Howard Street/Cobo Roof exit, you will turn left at the SECOND light after getting off. Then turn right at the next light and you will curve left (less than 500') and there is destination.
It is not a sprint, yet a marathon.

Fort Street?

No no no, you're doing it wrong. 94 from Port Huron way is how I come too. This is what you do, starting on 94:

Get off on 75 south towards downtown, and keep left to get on 375.
Follow 375 til it spills out on Jefferson
Keep to the right on Jefferson so you don't get off on the Lodge, and turn right when you're right in front of Cobo - that's Washington.
Turn left at the light on Washington - Congress St. It's at the end of Cobo.
Follow Congress past a couple lights til you see the ramp on your left.

This is the simplest way because you basically just use Cobo as your guide. Drive on Jefferson til Cobo blocks you, then turn, and drive til Cobo ends and turn again.

I work downtown. I believe this way would be the easiest way to get to Cobo roof. Do know that the Lodge exit off of 94 is a left exit.

It is MUCH cheaper to park at the Greektown Casino and take the people mover to JLA!

Yeah I usually access the Cobo Roof from the Ambassador Bridge thought, that's why I use Fort.
