M-134 to become first Pure Michigan Byway
A stretch of Upper Peninsula highway known for its recreational and scenic qualities will be named as the state’s first Pure Michigan Byway.
On Friday, the Michigan Department of Transportation announced that a section of M-134 running along Lake Huron between Detour Village and Town Center Road, on Drummond Island, has been selected for the new designation.
According to MDOT, the Pure Michigan Byway is the result of the state revising its former Heritage Byway program and is expected to align it more closely with the successful Pure Michigan advertising campaign.
MDOT will make an official announcement of M-134’s new designation at a press event set for 11 a.m. Oct. 16 at the Clark Township Community Center, 133 E. M-134 in Cedarville.
The public is invited.
