Right now I-75 and I-96 are severely
screwed up due to a multi-year highway construction project, so it could make getting to the Ambassador bridge quite frustrating. Then once you do
make it across, you have about 5 miles of surface traffic to contend with before you hit the 401. Because it's a major truck route, it kind of sucks. On the other hand if you cross through Port Huron, you get to see the twin spans of the Blue Water Bridges. One is ancient, and the other is about 15 years old. The I-94 ends at the bridge, and the 402 picks up right after Canadian customs. Nice and quick. You'll rejoin the 401 near London, but you may consider taking a slight detour through Stratford. It's still only spring (just barely), but it's still charming without all the green.
Ah... if you're coming up I-75, look for an alternate route. Maybe take I-375 to I-94, then you can hit I-75 again outside of town. Or take Southfield Road from I-75 to I-94, and hit I-75 again outside of town. Depending on time of day and day of week, the I-75 construction will just piss you off.
