From today's featured article
M-35 is a state trunkline highway in the Upper Peninsula (UP) of the US state of Michigan. Running for 128 miles (206 km) in a generally north–south direction, it connects the cities of Menominee, Escanaba and Negaunee. It is part of the Lake Michigan Circle Tour and is the UP Hidden Coast Recreational Heritage Trail in the Pure Michigan Byways program. Along the southern section, the highway is the closest trunkline to Green Bay, a section of Lake Michigan. The northern section of the highway turns inland through wooded terrain, connecting rural portions of Delta and Marquette counties. The road was designated as M-35 with signposts erected by 1919. It was intended to run from Menominee in the south to near Big Bay in the north, before turning toward L'Anse to end at Ontonagon, but the section through the Huron Mountains in northern Marquette and Baraga counties was never built. Automobile pioneer Henry Ford helped halt this construction to gain favor with the exclusive Huron Mountain Club. (Full article...)
