Interstate 75 North
Departing the Michigan Welcome Center and Mackinaw Bridge toll plaza, Interstate 75 approaches a three-quarter cloverleaf interchange with U.S. 2 west and Business Loop Interstate 75 north at St. Ignace (Exits 344A/B). Photo taken 07/28/07.
Business Loop I-75 constitutes the former alignment of U.S. 2 through St. Ignace. The business route follows State Street along East Moran Bay to Mackinac County Airport and Evergreen Shores. Photo taken 07/28/07.
Exit 344B loops onto the westbound beginning of U.S. 2 to Manistique, Gladstone, and Escanaba. The US highway originally continued northeast along or with Interstate 75 to Sault Sainte Marie. Truncation of the route occurred in 1983.1 Photo taken 07/28/07.
Interstate 75 South
One mile north of the Exit 162B/A full-cloverleaf interchange with U.S. 10 west and Michigan 25 east at Bay City. U.S. 10 begins at the forthcoming exit, traveling west to Midland and Ludington on Lake Michigan. Michigan 25 begins at Exit 162 and heads eastward with Business Spur Interstate 75 into downtown Bay City. Photo taken 07/28/07.
U.S. 10 saw truncation from its downtown Detroit terminus to Exit 162 of Interstate 75 by 1987.2 This occurred due to the overlaying nature of the freeway over the original US route southward to the Motor City. U.S. 10 travels its own freeway west to U.S. 127 at Clare. Photo taken 07/28/07.
Michigan 25 follows a 154.67-mile routing from Bay City along Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron, skimming the edge of Michigan's thumb, to Port Huron. Business Spur I-75 follows Michigan 25 eastward 3.05 miles to Michigan 84 (Washington Avenue) in downtown. Photo taken 07/28/07.
