Notes

State St. becomes State Rd. near the I-94 overpass. The entrance to GLERL is on the right (west) side of S. State Rd after you pass the Ann Arbor Airport, and just after you pass “Devon Self Storage” (also on your right). Do not be confused by a building labeled “4840” visible on the left (east) side of S. State Rd. opposite the entrance to GLERL's parking lot. That building is not actually on S. State Rd. and is not GLERL.
