Roby Law Associates, PLLC’s facilities are centrally located in the city of Royal Oak, county of Oakland, in the heart of Metropolitan Detroit on M-1, commonly known as Woodward Avenue. Named for Augustus B. Woodward, Woodward Avenue is a north–south state trunkline in Michigan. The Michigan State Trunkline Highway System is made up of all the highways designated as Interstates, U.S. Highways and State Highways in Michigan.
Woodward Avenue has been the main artery of Detroit’s transportation network since the incorporation of the modern plan of the city in 1805 and it therefore holds considerable cultural significance. In 1909, the stretch of Woodward Avenue between Six Mile and Seven Mile Roads became the first mile of road in the world to be paved with concrete.
Many historical sites are located along Woodward Avenue. The road was designated a Michigan Heritage Route by the Michigan Department of Transportation-Design Division in July 1999 and as a National Scenic Byway by the Federal Highway Administration National Scenic Byways Program on June 13, 2002.
