The Michigan Left: Photos & Plans

Example of a lesser-used variant on the Michigan Left sign.

While 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 Christopher J. Bessert, All Rights Reserved.

 Interesting TO I-96 trailblazerBarry 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. (Thanks to Barry for allowing the use of the photo!)
