Interstate 194 (abbreviated I-194) is a short three-mile long, north-south freeway between downtown Battle Creek and I-94 in the southern portion of the city. The Michigan Department of Transportation lists its length as convert|3.42|mi|km|2 long, while the Federal Highway Administration lists it at convert|3.38|mi|km|2. Route Log and Finder List - Interstate Highways, FHWA, Oct. 31, 2002.] The highway has the local designation as the Sojourner Truth Downtown Parkway after the abolitionist Sojourner Truth, who was active in the Battle Creek area. Some locals refer to the freeway as "The Penetrator". "Penetrator to get $1.6M face-lift." The Enquirer (Battle Creek, Mich.), March 18, 2002.]

It is the only three-digit spur or loop route off of I-94 in the state of Michigan and coincides throughout its length with M-66, which continues both north and south from the termini of I-194.

Route description

Part of the much longer highway, I-194 starts when M-66 widens out to a full freeway just south of I-94. The start of I-194 is marked by the full cloverleaf interchange. It is numbered as Exit 98 along I-94 and Exit 1 using I-194's mileage along the I-194/M-66 freeway. Traveling northbound, I-194 intersects with M-96/Columbia Avenue and BL I-94/Dickman Road before terminating at Hamblin Avenue in downtown Battle Creek.


From its inception in 1961 until 1964, I-194 also carried the BL I-94 and M-78 designations. BL I-94 was rerouted in Battle Creek to ML King Drive and M-78 in 1964 and M-78 was replaced by M-66 in 1965. The last change to the I-194 routing was the extension of the northern end of the freeway from Columbia Avenue to Michigan Avenue in 1966.
