Michigan Highway 311 is a fairly short north-south highway in south-central Michigan. The northern end of Michigan Highway 311 is at an interchange with Interstate 94, east of Battle Creek but west of Marshall. Michigan Highway 311 heads south from there, and immediately hits a crossroads with Michigan Highway 96 a block to the south (see photo below). Once Michigan Highway 311 really gets started, though, it spurs southerly toward Burlington, Michigan. The southern end of Michigan Highway 311 is indeed in Burlington, at Michigan Highway 60. The length of Michigan Highway 311 is nearly fourteen miles, and it is mainly rural in nature.
My photo of Michigan Highway 311 signage comes from the intersection of Michigan Highways 311 and 96. As stated before, this junction is absurdly close to the northern end of Michigan Highway 311, at Interstate 94. The guide assembly depicted helps eastbound travelers on Michigan Highway 96 make their decisions. Part of the sign assembly's purpose is to mention that Michigan Highway 311 is reached by a turn to the right; a turn to the left just has Michigan Highway 311 immediately dying out at Interstate 94. This photo was taken in March 2019 as I was driving around central and south-central Michigan.
