Michigan Highway 179 is a fairly short connection between US Route 131 and the town of Hastings to the east. This east-west corridor is south of Grand Rapids, but north of Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. The western end of Michigan Highway 179, at US Route 131, is just south of Wayland, Michigan. The eastern end in Hastings occurs at Michigan Highway 43, which comes from the south and turns easterly into town.
My photo of Michigan Highway 179 shows the westernmost stretch of the highway, looking west. The westbound reassurance marker shown in the photograph informs drivers that they have turned from US Route 131's old two-lane alignment onto Michigan Highway 179. US Route 131's current freeway alignment lies less than a mile to the west, into the photo's background. This photo was taken just south of Wayland, Michigan, at the beginning of August 2022; I was coming home from a trip to the Upper Peninsula and Alpena.
