Route description

History

The Michigan State Highway Department (forerunner of today's MDOT) designated M-149 on December 2, 1930. The designation was set up to provide access from US 2 northerly to Palms Book State Park. A second highway, the first designation of M-125, was formed on August 31, 1931 to connect US 2 southerly with the Thompson State Fish Hatchery. When US 2 was rerouted in the Manistique area in 1935 and 1936, US 2 was moved south of the southern terminus of M-125. M-125 was extended south to connect to the new US 2 routing on August 30, 1937. M-149 was later rerouted to connect with M-125 and replace it. No other changes to the routing of M-149 would be made.[1]
