- DIRECTION DETAILS: Take 90 East or West. Take exit 151 for Route 611 towards Sheffield/Avon. Go NORTH on 611. You'll pass gas stations immediately on the left and a McDonald's on the right. Continue on Route 611/Colorado Avenue for 6 miles. At one point, Route 611 will bend to the left (south). There is a Wendy's on this corner. CONTINUE STRAIGHT through the light (Colorado Avenue now). Go over railroad tracks. Not far after, you will dead end at Route 6/Lake Road. Continue straight through this light. Colorado immediately takes a hard left turn and turns into Lakeside Avenue. Hang left at this turn then immediately turn RIGHT into the Spitzer/Lakeside area. You'll see the restaurant and Spitzer/Lakeside building on your left and the impoundment ahead.
