The highway begins on the south side of downtown Detroit, at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Griswold Street. The highway has 2×3 lanes here and you pass under a large shopping center. The road then turns north, crossing Interstate 75, which is here called the Fisher Freeway. M-10 then runs north along the north downtown area, crossing Interstate 94, the highway from Chicago.towards the Canadian border at Port Huron. The highway therefore has 2×3 lanes further north, and is partly below ground level. It passes through neighborhoods with many houses demolished or empty, a result of the abandonment of 900,000 residents of the city since the 1950s. In the Highland Park enclave, one crosses SR-8, the Davison Freeway. The Lodge Freeway then turns to the northwest. After the intersection with 8 Mile Road, you leave the city of Detroit, and you enter the suburb Southfield. In Southfield, the SR-39 or Southfield Freeway terminates at the Lodge Freeway. A little further on, the Lodge Freeway ends at a major interchange with Interstate 696, the Reuther Freeway, which runs east-west through the northern suburbs.

In the 1950s, it was planned to extend the Lodge Freeway all the way to US 23 at Fenton, continuing north through Flint as the Fenton – Clio Expressway. This was ultimately not carried out, because the I-75 was already being built. In 1953, the interchange opened with the Edsel Ford Freeway in Detroit, which is credited as the United States’ first freeway interchange. The highway then opened for a short distance from I-94 into downtown Detroit, and was numbered as US 12, later as US 10, and then as State Route 10. In the early 1960s, the highway was routed to I. -696 opened to traffic, and it was then the first freeway link between Lansing and Detroit, as I-96 had not yet been built in Detroit.
It was originally planned to extend the highway westward via Northwestern Highway to an extension of I-275, which should have continued to I-75 west of Pontiac. Both extensions were never built, leaving all traffic in the northwest conurbation of I-75 dependent on I-75.
The Lodge Freeway is moderately busy, but not extremely busy, with 74,000 vehicles near the center rising to 135,000 in Highland Park. After that, the intensities drop to about 105,000 vehicles.

The highway begins on the west side of Ann Arbor, where the road branches off from Interstate 94. I-94 passes south of Ann Arbor, M-14 north of it. The highway has 2×2 lanes here. A few miles away, on the north side of Ann Arbor, US 23 runs north, double-numbered east with M-14 for several miles. To the north one can go to Flint. On the east side of Ann Arbor, US 23 turns south toward Toledo, Ohio. The highway will then run in 2×2 lanes towards the metropolitan area of Detroit. Between Ann Arbor and the first suburbs of Detroit is only about 15 kilometers. When entering the conurbation, the road immediately widens to 2×3 lanes.

In 1964, the highway between Ann Arbor and State Route 153 opened to traffic west of Canton. The link between State Route 153 and the then-new I-96/I-275 opened to traffic in 1979, giving Detroit its third and final highway connection west.
The M-14 is not very busy, with between 60,000 and 94,000 vehicles between Ann Arbor and Livonia.
