M-15 was named Michigan’s first Heritage Route by the Michigan Department of Transportation in 1998.
According to the MDOT site, the Heritage Route program is a grass-roots initiative offering communities the opportunity to maintain their identities and values by preserving the historic resources, natural beauty and recreational opportunities along Michigan’s state highways.
The program also encourages communities to form new local and governmental partnerships, and to enhance the community’s role in the growing tourism industry through promotion of the Heritage Route. For more details visit our classified advertising section in today’s edition.
