Notes: The routing of M-67 has remained largely unchanged since the 1920s! The highway's southern terminus was originally at M-15, which later became US-41. On the same token, M-67's northern terminus has changed from M-25 to M-28 to M-94, all the while remaining physically in the same place!
  New! In "State Trunkline Needs, 1960–1980," a set of maps prepared by the State Highway Dept's Office of Planning, Programming Division in 1960 showing possible additions, upgrades and improvements to the state trunkline system over the ensuing twenty years, MSHD staff recommended absolutely no change whatsoever M-67 during that timeframe.
History: 1916 (Aug 12) New! – An 11.2-mile long state trunkline highway route is officially determined in Alger Co beginning at T.L. 15 (later M-15, then US-41) in downtown Trenary and continues easterly for two miles before turning northerly for about 9½ miles to a terminus at T.L. 25 (later M-25, then M-28 and now M-94) one mile south of downtown Chatham. This new trunkline route is designated as T.L. 67 (Trunk Line 67).
  1938 (Aug 30) New! – The route of US-41 in the Trenary area is relocated onto a new, shorter and more direct alignment. The former route, following present-day Old US-41 from 1½ miles southwest of Trenary easterly for ½ mile then northerly for one mile into Trenary is turned back to County control, while the ¾-mile from jct M-67 in downtown Trenary westerly to the new route of US-41 becomes an extension of the route of M-67. This is the only time the route of M-67 is ever lengthened.
  1970 (Oct 15) Updates – The 90° corner at Winters Rd (and the north-south portion of M-67) and Trudell Rd (and the east-west portion of M-67) approximately two miles east of downtown Trenary is replaced with a sweeping curve. The 0.428-mile curve segment is officially added as a part of M-67, while the 0.547-mile segment of Trudell Rd (from the curve east to Winters Rd) and Winters Rd (from Trudell Rd to the curve) is turned back to County control. This is the only time the route of M-67 is ever shortened.
Controlled Access: No portion of M-67 is freeway or expressway.
