M-144 was the designation assigned to two former state trunkline highways in the U.S. state of Michigan. The original version of M-144 existed as a short spur connecting the Michigan State Police headquarters in East Lansing to Michigan Avenue, which was signed at the time as M-39. The second version of M-144 began in Roscommon County and traveled between the towns of Roscommon and Luzerne in Oscoda County.cite web | author= Bessert, Christopher J. | title=Michigan Highways: Historical Overview | work=Michigan Highways | url= http://www.michiganhighways.org/master_list.html | accessdate=2008-03-02 ]

History

The first incarnation of M-144 only lasted for four years, designated in 1936 to serve as the aforementioned connector to the state police headquarters, it was removed in 1940 at which time it was relocated near Houghton Lake as version two of M-144. The former northern terminus at Michigan Avenue, today, is unsigned state trunkline M-143.
