Business Routes of Interstate 75 in Michigan - West Branch

West Branch

Business Loop Interstate 75
Location: West Branch, Michigan
Existed: 1971–present

Interstate 75 Business Loop, or BL I-75 is a loop route running through West Branch, Michigan, USA. It was first commissioned as BUS M-76 before the complete decommissioning of M-76 in Michigan in favor of I-75.

BL I-75 uses a portion of the former M-76 and the current M-55. The southernmost portion from the Cook Road interchange at I-75 to OLD M-76/Alger Road was built as a new roadway in 1971. This section was built when the I-75/M-76 freeway was completed as far north as Cook Road. This new roadway allowed M-76 to connect to its former alignment south of West Branch in 1970.
The next year, the I-75/M-76 freeway was completed to the current interchange with M-55 west of town. The former routing of M-76 along Cook Road, Alger Road and M-55 is redesignated as BUS M-76.
When the last section of I-75 was completed in 1973, connecting the end of the freeway at M-55 with the other end at M-18 near Roscommon, M-76 is completely decommissioned. BUS M-76 became BL I-75 with these changes.
