This paper highlights the major traffic issues that have been experienced in connection with the Grand Prix races in Detroit, and indicates measures that have been taken to deal with those issues. Basic experiences that can be applied to other special events relate to planning, communications, and publicity. The traffic management techniques described here relate to street closures and barricading, pedestrian walkways, traffic signals, temporary traffic signs, parking and bus rerouting. It has been found that the extensive planning and media campaign have payed off in a minimum of disruption for downtown businesses and activities during race week.
