M-106 is the designation given to a state trunk route in the Lower Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan near the city of Jackson. M-106 travels in a southwest to northeast direction from Jackson to Gregory at a junction with M-36 just a few miles northwest of Hell. In Jackson, M-106 travels next to the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility, one of the world's largest maximum security prisons.

History

M-106 was first designated on 1928-06-28. It was routed from US 12/Michigan Avenue along Cooper Street to Bunkerhill Road, a total of 4.5 miles (7.2 km). This route was extended north to Stockbridge on December 8, 1930. A further realignment of M-36 resulted in the extension of M-106 to Gregory. Cooper Street in Jackson was converted to one-way, southbound traffic on November 30, 1967. A northbound routing along Milwaukee Street was established. The south end of southbound M-106 was trimmed back to end at BL I-94/BUS US 127/M-50. Two-way traffic was restored in 2004. M-106 was shifted only along Cooper Street (formerly Milwaukee Street) and Francis Street (formerly Cooper Street) is left as an unsigned trunkline.[1]
