M-130 was the designation of a former state trunkline highway in the extreme southeast corner of the US state of Michigan. It ran from Monroe westerly along current day North Custer Road on the northern side of River Raisin. The route continued onto present day Ida-Maybee Road, ending shortly thereafter.[2]

Route description[edit]

Beginning at a junction with M-50 just north of Ida, M-130 traveled along Ida-Maybee Road across the Raisin River before turning southeast on Custer Road. While on Custer Road, M-130 ran along the northern banks of the river passing through primarily agricultural areas. The rural surroundings dominated much of the route until it began to encroach on the outskirts of Monroe. The highway terminated at US 24 in Monroe.

M-130 also had a spur route which ran from its western terminus along North Custer Road to Muehleisen Road.[3][4][5]

History[edit]

Prior to 1930, M-130 ended at the intersection of North Custer and Ida-Maybee Roads. In 1930, when US 23 was realigned to run west along M-50, the former section between North Custer and M-50 was added to the M-130 designation. The M-130 extension spur route was implemented in anticipation of a US 23 realignment which never came to fruition. Both the highway and extension were returned to local control in 1955.[6][5]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire highway was in Monroe County.
