Does anyone here know if there is an Allen Rd. anywhere in the city of Detroit? And if so where is it located? Thanks. John.

Allen Road runs as far south as the Trenton, Flat Rock area, and I know terminates at Rotunda Dr in northern Melvindale. It runs through Flat Rock, Trenton, Southgate, Allen Park, Melvindale.

Hope this helps. Used to be my old stomping ground.

I was trying to help a person from Arizona who was scammed by someone using an address on Allen Rd in Detroit. Nationexfinancial.com was the culprit and it turns out the business doesn't exist which is pretty much what I expected. Thanks for the help.

Basically the company promised to provide debt relief loans for those with poor credit. The catch is that in order to qualify for the loan they require a substantial payment in advance. Once they receive the payment you get the run around for a few weeks until they skip town and set up shop somewhere else. One would have to be extremely naive (or desperate) to fall for the scam, but I hate to see someone on hard times lose what little they have.

actually it doesn't run through Trenton..It runs through Woodhaven..Trenton and Woodhaven are right next to each other...Actually, I don't think it runs through Flat Rock either. I do know it ends at Gibraltar Rd in Gibraltar.

It doesn't run through Trenton, Flatrock or Gibraltar. It runs through Woodhaven and Brownstown Twp at it's southern end. It does end at Gibraltar Rd. A couple of blocks west of Gibraltar.

Originally Allen road actually went across Fort street to meet with Fort Rd/Dixie Hwy. Back in those days it was all Brownstown Township. For a time part of it from Fort rd. to West road was part of the Alt US-24 Highway.
