Michigan Highway 86 runs east-west in the western half of south-central Michigan. It provides a link running due east-west between two highways that run east-northeast to west-southwest: Michigan Highway 60 and US Route 12. The western end is at Michigan Highway 60 in Three Rivers, just barely east of US Route 131. Michigan Highway 86 then serves as the main highway through Centreville and Colon, Michigan (named because of two round lakes positioned north and south of each other). The final stretch of Michigan Highway 86 heading eastward out of Colon culminates in a junction with US Route 12 at Coldwater. This eastern terminus brings travelers to Coldwater, and eventually Interstate 69, which lies just to the east.
My photo of Michigan Highway 86 signage comes from the route's northern junction with Michigan Highway 66, just west of Colon. Michigan Highway 86's eastward journey is temporarily interrupted by a concurrency with Michigan Highway 66 toward the north. The end of this concurrency is a fork in the road, where I snapped the photo above. The guide assembly depicted shows northbound travelers that the eastward continuation of Michigan Highway 86 splits off toward the right. This photo was taken in February 2019 as I was taking a long way to Grand Rapids, goofing around in south-central Michigan.
