Michigan Route 45
| The Western Terminus of M-45 is at US
31, along the four-lane divided stretch of the U.S. highway between
Holland and Grand Haven. Note that right arrow plates appear
beneath both the US 31 South and US 31 North shields on the M-45 ENDS
assembly. All traffic from M-45 West bound for US 31 must turn
onto US 31 North, as a
Michigan Left Turn is required to access US 31 South from M-45

| This is the first M-45 East
reassurance marker, which is accompanied by an Emergency US 31 North
"uni-sign". Emergency US 31 shields appear along M-45, 68th Ave. and
I-96 to provide motorists an alternate route for when the drawbridge
that carries US 31 over the Grand River is up.

| The Eastern Terminus of M-45 is at
I-196 (Exit 75) in the western end of Grand Rapids. Since this
assembly was photographed, the ENDS plate beneath the M-45 shield has
been replaced with an up arrow, indicating that M-45 continues beyond
I-196. Fulton Street to the east of this interchange is still
under the jurisdiction of M.D.O.T., but is now an unsigned state
highway. Additionally, the guide sign on the I-196 East overpass in the
background notes M-45 as heading east onto Fulton Street. That
sign is still there. For all intents and purposes, however, I-196
is considered the Eastern Terminus of M-45.
