Interstate 194 in Michigan is a three-mile freeway spur from Interstate 94 north into downtown Battle Creek. The southern end at Interstate 94 is a full cloverleaf interchange, on the south side of Battle Creek. As the entirety of Interstate 194 is concurrent with Michigan Highway 66, the roadway continues south beyond Interstate 94 as Michigan Highway 66. The northernmost interchange of Interstate 194 is at Dickman Road, and the northern end of Interstate 194 spills onto Division Street in downtown Battle Creek.
My photo of a cutout shield for Interstate 194 comes from the northernmost full interchange along the freeway, at Dickman Road in Battle Creek. In recent years, the adoption of unisigns for Michigan's Interstate junctions has made cutout shields difficult to find across the state. Usually, I'm relegated to finding these cutout shields on "To" guide markers, distant from the Interstate itself. However, this cutout shield sits right at the entrance ramp to Interstate 194's southbound carriageway. It faces east so that westbound travelers on Dickman Road can find the southbound onramp. This photo was taken in August 2020, taking a somewhat indirect route home from Traverse City and Lansing.
Michigan Interstate guides will come with complete exit lists and a photo for every exit, at some point in the future when I've driven the full lengths of all of them. This page showing the cutout shield will stay here for now, until that happens.
