Route description

CONN M-13 starts at exit 164 along I-75/US 23 north of Bay City. At the interchange that marks its southern terminus, the connector route continues to the north while the main I-75 freeway turns northwesterly. About three-quarters of a mile (1.2 km) north, there is an interchange for Wilder Road. Traffic running southbound on the connector that wishes to continue northbound on I-75/US 23 has to use Wilder Road to connect to the latter freeway. The connector route is bordered by fields and residential subdivisions as it continues north to the community of Kawkawlin. The freeway ends at and at-grade intersection with M-13.[5]

History

This short freeway was opened in late 1960 or early 1961 as the north end of a new US 23 freeway around Bay City.[6][7] The freeway was extended farther north to the Standish area in 1967; M-13 was extended north to replace the US 23 designation along the latter's former routing through Pinconning. At that time, the freeway stub north of Bay City became CONN M-13.[1][2]

Exit list

The entire highway is in Monitor Township, Bay County. All exits are unnumbered.
