  New! M-105 was a short cut-off route between M-53 southwest of Bad Axe and what is now M-142 (which was designated M-29 when M-105 was first determined in 1928 and later designated M-83 as of the retirement of M-105 in 1939) in central Huron Co. For its entire existence, M-105 never bore a hard surface.
History: 1928 (Mar 9) New! – The 5.0 miles of Popple Rd from M-53/Van Dyke Rd westerly one mile to Grassmere Rd and Grassmere from Popple northerly to M-83/Pigeon Rd (present-day M-142) are transferred back to state jurisdiction, after having been previous part of the route of M-53 from 1920–23. This new route is designated M-105.
  1939 (July 13) New! – In a spate of similar turnbacks, the entire route of M-105 is transferred from state back to county control. M-105 ceases to be a state trunkline designation and has not been used since.
Controlled Access: New! No portion of M-105 upon decommissioning existed as freeway or expressway.
