Interstate 94, in Michigan, runs east-west across southern parts of the Lower Peninsula, serving Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Marshall, Jackson, Ann Arbor, Detroit, and Port Huron. has the main distinction of connecting the Chicago area and points southwest to Detroit, continuing northeast beyond Detroit to Port Huron. In the southwest corner of Michigan, Interstate 94 enters Michigan by crossing the Indiana state line between Michigan City, Indiana, and New Buffalo. Interstate 94 stays near the southeastern shore of Lake Michigan for its first segment, running northeasterly to Benton Harbor and St. Joseph. In the Benton Harbor area, Interstate 94 turns easterly to head inland, but spawns Interstate 196 for those who wish to continue north alongside Lake Michigan. Interstate 94 runs pretty straight toward the east, passing Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Marshall, and Jackson. At Ann Arbor, the freeway splits into two freeways into Detroit, and Interstate 94 takes the more southerly route; Michigan Highway 14 is the northerly freeway continuing eastward. In Metro Detroit, Interstate 94 is made to turn northeasterly. It flanks downtown and aligns itself toward Lake St. Clair and the St. Clair River (which is to say, the Canadian border). In Port Huron, Interstate 69 merges with Interstate 94, and the two concurrent freeways continue for a few miles to their mutual endpoint. They end at the Blue Water Bridge, crossing the St. Clair River into Sarnia, Ontario.
My photo of a cutout shield for Interstate 94 comes from the intersection of Michigan Highways 96 and 311, east of Battle Creek. The guide assembly faces west, giving eastbound travelers on Michigan Highway 96 the chance to find where to turn onto Michigan Highway 311. Michigan Highway 311 continues to the north, but only for another block to its northern end at Interstate 94. MDOT included mention of this nearby interchange with Interstate 94, found quickly after a left turn to the north. 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. The cutout shield in this photo is no exception! This guide marker isn't positioned at too great a distance from Interstate 94, of course; the freeway interchange is just a block to the north. This photo was taken in March 2019 on a trip around central and southern Michigan.
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.
