M-143 (Michigan Highway) - Route Description

Route Description

Michigan Avenue travels through the Greater Lansing area on an east–west axis which runs through the Capitol Building in downtown Lansing. While disconnected between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Capitol Avenue in the downtown area, the eastern portion of Michigan Avenue begins at the Capitol and runs easterly, ending in downtown East Lansing. For much of its length in the City of Lansing, Michigan Avenue is a five-lane thoroughfare maintained by the city. Just west of US Highway 127 (US 127), the street transitions into a six-lane boulevard and proceeds easterly to the East Lansing city limit. From that point easterly for about a mile (1.6 km) to M-43 at Grand River Avenue in downtown East Lansing, Michigan Avenue is state-maintained as a four- to six-lane boulevard designated M-143. Michigan Avenue here is the northern boundary of the main campus of Michigan State University near the Red Cedar River. This highway designation is not signed on Michigan Avenue even though the street is under the control of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). In 2011, MDOT's traffic surveys showed that on average, between 19,503 and 20,308 vehicles used the trunkline daily. No section of M-143 is listed on the National Highway System, a network of roads important to the country's economy, defense, and mobility.

Famous quotes containing the words description and/or route:

    God damnit, why must all those journalists be such sticklers for detail? Why, they’d hold you to an accurate description of the first time you ever made love, expecting you to remember the color of the room and the shape of the windows.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)

    By whatever means it is accomplished, the prime business of a play is to arouse the passions of its audience so that by the route of passion may be opened up new relationships between a man and men, and between men and Man. Drama is akin to the other inventions of man in that it ought to help us to know more, and not merely to spend our feelings.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)
