US Highway 2 (US 2) is a part of the United States Numbered Highway System that runs from Everett, Washingtonmarker, to the Upper Peninsulamarker of the US state of Michiganmarker. The highway enters the state at Ironwoodmarker and ends at St. Ignacemarker.

US 2 re-enters Michigan in Kingsfordmarker then travels east to Escanabamarker where US 2 starts to follow the coast of Lake Michiganmarker. Along the Lake Michigan shore line US 2 passes through the Hiawatha National Forest in Deltamarker and Mackinac Countiesmarker.

History

The first state trunkline highway designated along the path of the modern US 2 was M-12, in use as far back as 1919. When the US Highway System was announced on November 11, 1926, US 2 replaced M-12.

Major intersections

The following table shows the major intersections along US 2. Included are intersections with county-designated highways, other state trunklines and US Highways. MDOT has erected milemarkers along the highway that use the mileage starting at the state line in Ironwood. These markers do not reset at the state line when US 2 crosses back into Wisconsin and instead count that mileage in the totals.

US 2 enters Wisconsin and travels 14.26 miles before re-entering Michigan
