City Facts

Community Profile


Taylor is in the Downriver section of Metropolitan Detroit, an area that is south of Dearborn, north of Monroe, west of the Detroit River and just east of Detroit Metropolitan Airport. We like to say "all roads lead to Taylor" since we are intersected by the I-94 and I-75 freeways, we are home to six miles of Telegraph Road (US-24) and we are just blocks away from the Southfield Freeway (M-39).
