M-64 is a north-south highway in the Upper Peninsulamarker of the U.S. state of Michiganmarker. 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).

Route description

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

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. As a result, the northern terminus of M-64 is now at a junction with U.S. Route 45 and M-38.
