Route description

M-113 starts west of Kingsley on M-37 south of Traverse City. It runs east through Kingsley before turning south near Fife Lake. Just past the 90-degree turn in M-113 is the junction with M-186. This junction was the terminus of M-113 until 1940. M-113 continues south past Camp Pugsley Correctional Facility and terminates at US 131 north of the Manistee River and the Grand TraverseWexford county line.

History

M-113 was first designated on November 21, 1927 from M-42 west of Kingsley to a three-way junction with US 131 and M-131 near Fife Lake. At this time, US 131 ended west of Fife Lake. M-131 continued east to Fife Lake and north to Petoskey. M-42 was replaced by M-37 in 1940, and US 131 was relocated north from Walton Junction along a new alignment to Fife Lake. From Fife Lake north, US 131 replaced M-131. The portion of M-131 running west of Fife Lake became M-186 and the remaining piece of US 131 between M-113 and Walton Junction was added to M-113.[1]
