|SUBJECT:||Dual and Triple Routing on State Trunklines|
At our last Trunkline Numbering Committee meeting December 1982, we reviewed the list of dual and triple routing researched and prepared by the Traffic and Safety Division; a list prepared by Transportation Planning from our inventory and a Transportation Planning proposed recommendation to change some segments of five routes. Concerning your suggestions:
- - M-28 is a continuous route along the northern portion of the U.P. and would be impractical to change this route number. An alternative would be to have US-41 which intersects with US-2, go west to existing US-141, then replace existing US-141 up to M-28. This would require a new route number between Rapid River and Marquette for the existing US-41.
- - The District Traffic and Safety Engineer, Paul Michelin, and we concur that US-2 could terminate at St. Ignace. We recommend that the department contact AASHTO and proceed to remove US-2 along I-75.
- - The District Traffic and Safety Engineer, Fred Eggan, and we concur that M-68 should end at Alanson.
- - District Traffic and Safety Engineer, Bruce Conradson, has already removed the signs along this section of M-66.
- ultimately save this agency funds. District Traffic and Safety Engineer, Dave Van Hine, suggested consideration be given to extending M-25 from Bay City to Ludington instead of changing to M-10. M-25 would be a continuous route from Port Huron to Ludington. - We concur with changing US-10 to M-10 from Ludington to Bay City, and eliminating US-10 from Bay City to Detroit. This action would require extension of US-24 (Telegraph Road) to I-75 changing US-10BR in the city of Pontiac to US-24BR, and extending M-4 (Northwestern Highway) to Cobo Hall. Although this is an expensive option, this will
