Aerial view of a Michigan Left Configuration along
US-41/M-28 at McClellan Ave in Marquette, in the central Upper Peninsula.
diagrammatic signage is often present along sideroads intersecting a divided
highway where Michigan Lefts are used, this one on McClellan Ave at US-41/M-28
in Marquette (at the location pictured in the aerial shot above) is overly diagrammtic.
However, since Michigan Lefts are less common in the Upper Peninsula than they
are downstate, such additional detail is likely necessary. Photo ©2005

L. Camp snapped a photo of a rather unique I-96 trailblazer route marker assembly
in central Kent County, just east of Grand Rapids. In addition to the usual "TO" and "I-96" markers,
the arrow at the bottom of the assembly actually illustrates the movement required
to get from northbound Spaulding Ave onto westbound M-21/E Fulton St (and toward
I-96) via the Michigan Left. Barry snapped the photo in May 2005 and reports that by May of 2007 it had been removed. Click the image to see a larger version

for the linkage!)
