M-64 is a north–south highway in the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan. It was one of the last highways in the state of Michigan to be paved. Both M-64 and M-95 are the only two Michigan state highways having no state-maintained counterparts on the Wisconsin side of the state line. M-64 connects with CTH-B (County Trunk Highway B).[1]

Route description

M-64 runs from the Wisconsin state line south of Marenisco and north of Presque Isle, Wisconsin. From Marenisco, it runs concurrently with US 2 for two miles (3 km) before turning north to run along the west side of Lake Gogebic to Lake Gogebic State Park. At Merriweather it runs with M-28 to Bergland. Turning north once again, M-64 runs to Silver City. From Silver City, M-64 is an east–west highway to its terminus at Ontonagon.

History

In October 2006, the routing of M-64 was realigned to utilize the newly built Ontonagon River Bridge upstream of the former swing bridge crossing which had reached the end of its functional lifespan.[2] As a result, the northern terminus of M-64 is now at a junction with U.S. Route 45 and M-38.
