Maps: New! 2024-02 Route Map of Former M-110
Notes: * The termini and final length for M-110 reflect the beginning and ending of the route and its length as of the time of its most recent decommissioning in late 2003.
  Until late 2003, M-110 was a spur route serving Orchard Beach State Park which is approximately 1½ miles off US-31. Contrary to a few maps over the years, M-110 never continued northerly and easterly to connect with M-22 near Onekama.
  It was somewhat suprising to casual observers when MDOT transferred this highway to the Manistee County Road Commission in 2003. While M-110 was a short highway, it, like so many others around the state, served a state park facility. It is not clear which party initiated the transfer process in this case.
  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 changes to the route of M-110 during that timeframe. M-110 is shown on the maps in the same configuration as it would have until its decommissioning in 2003.
History: 1927 (Aug 8) – The southernmost 1.3 miles of Lake Shore Rd north of Manistee from US-31 northerly is officially established as a state trunkline highway route, designated as M-110.
  1940 (Nov 12) – An additional ½ mile is added to the northern end of M-110, bringing the trunkline northerly to Kott Rd.
  1996 (June 28) Updated 2023-12 – The southernmost approximately 1,000 feet of M-110 at US-31 in Parkdale is relocated to intersect US-31 at a nearly 90° angle just north of the Marquette Rail crossing instead of at an acute angle just south of the railroad crossing (where both US-31 and M-110 indivudually crossed the railroad immediately north of the intersection). The new alignment, in addition to providing better sight lines at the intersection also eliminates one of the two railroad crossings, decreasing potential vehicle-trail conflicts. The new 0.183-mile long segment of M-110 is officially established and the 0.199-mile former alignment is officially abandoned by obliteration on this date.
  2003 (Dec 4) – M-110 is cancelled as a state trunkline and to county control in its entirety. Former M-110 is now known solely as Lake Shore Rd under the jurisdiction of the Manistee Co Road Commission.
Controlled Access: No portion of former M-110 upon decommissioning existed as freeway or expressway.
NHS: No portion of former M-110 upon decommissioning was on the National Highway System (NHS).
