Michigan Highway 221 is a short spur north to the town of Brimley, in the northeastern Upper Peninsula. Michigan Highway 221 starts at Michigan Highway 28, in an area southwest of Sault Ste. Marie. From there, Michigan Highway 221 heads north for about two and a half miles to Brimley, on the southern shore of a bay of Lake Superior-- that bay is called Waiska Bay. A T-intersection with a road called Iroquois Road marks the northern end of Michigan Highway 221; Iroquois Road runs northwest from there, following the southwestern shore of Waiska Bay, toward Mission and Bay Mills.
My photo of Michigan Highway 221 comes from the southern end of the highway, at the junction with Michigan Highway 28. The signage depicted communicates to drivers that they have successfully turned from Michigan Highway 28 onto Michigan Highway 221. Those drivers, and my aperture, face north to read this initial reassurance marker. This photo was taken at the end of July 2022, along a trip to the Keweenaw, Drummond Island, and Alpena.
