The passenger terminal complex at Detroit Metro Airport consists of two terminals - the North Terminal (off Rogell Drive), and the the McNamara Terminal (off John Dingell Drive) -
connected by a shuttle bus*, and accessible from  I-94 (Exit 198) or I-275 (Exit 18). 
*Shuttle buses are subject to airport roadway & traffic conditions - count on one hour between connections.

A shuttle bus circles the terminal area
and runs every 10 mins between the North Terminal and the Westin Hotel (7 mins), between the hotel and the McNamara Terminal (2 mins) and between the McNamara and North Terminals (7 mins).
Concourse A of McNamara has 1.5 miles of moving walkways, but also uses the Express Tram serving 3 stations - the South station near gate A11, the Terminal station in the center near the water feature, and the North station near gate A67.

International Arrivals:  Unless you have gone through US customs clearance by participating airports in Canada and the Caribbean, you need to go through passport check, retrieve checked bags, go through customs clearance and - if transferring to another flight - re-check-in bag . You can connect to your departing gates by moving walkways or by taking the Express Tram. 30 new  Automated Passport Control (APCs) kiosks in both terminals may now be used by eligible passengers - considerably cut down on wait times.  NOTE:  It may take up to one hour between international flight arrival and completion of the entry process by the first passenger of this flight.

International Arrivals continuing their journey:  If arriiving on an international flight operated by Lufthansa, Spirit Airlines or Royal Jordanian Airlines - proceed to your connecting airline’s check-in counter to re-check bags. Passengers  connecting to flights operated by Delta, Air France or KLM Royal Dutch should follow signs to 'Ground Transportation' for the free 'Terminal-Westin-Terminal' shuttle to the McNamara Terminal.  Passengers connecting with other airlines need to proceed to their connecting airline’s check-in counter directly above the North Terminal's international arrivals hall.
