While it can be assumed the freeway signage changes are awaiting this area's conversion to the newer Clearview typeface in the future, it is interesting to note how long some of the route markers have hung on along this route so long after it was decommissioned.
1978 (Sept 18) - After having been transferred to local control, along with the rest of Grand River Ave in Ionia Co, on March 7, 1960, approximately one-quarter mile of Grand River from I-96 at Exit 77 to the Portland city limit is transferred back to state control.1959 (Nov 21) - A new eastern freeway bypass of the city of Jackson is completed and opened to traffic as part of a relocated US-127, which now continues continues via the new freeway from the southern jct with M-50 northerly to the I-94/US-12 freeway, then westerly concurrently with I-94/US-12 back to the existing route of US-127 (completed in 1957) northwest of downtown.The former route of US-127/M-50 through the city is redesignated as BUS US-127/M-50.It can be assumed no BS I-96 route markers appear at this time.1982 - The remainder of BS I-96 at Portland from the east city limit into downtown, where it terminates, begins appearing on official state highway maps, so it can be assumed the rest of the route has been transferred back to state control this year. 2012–2017 - As of December 2012, the BS I-96 route markers on the Exit 77 signage along I-96 are still present and some of the admittedly sparse BS I-96 signage along Grand River Ave in Portland still exists more than five years after its transfer to local control.Lansing's BL I-96 is the third-longest Business Connection in the state, running nearly a mile shorter than Lansing's other Interstate Business Connection, BL I-69, and approximately 1/10th mile shorter than Battle Creek's BL I-94.
1962 (Dec 14) - The middle portion of the I-96 freeway in mid-Michigan, from northwest of Lansing to Brighton, is completed and opened to traffic, signaling and end for the US-16 route designation in Michigan.
This is possibly a trial period, as no actual jurisdictional transfers will take place for another four years.
For now, ebd BL I-94 traffic turns southerly from Michigan Ave via Blackstone St for two blocks to Washington Ave, then travel easterly via Washington for three blocks to Francis St, northerly via Francis for two blocks back to Michigan Ave.
Until 2002, Jackson's BUS US-127 was the only Business Connection for US-127 in Michigan.
Once US-127 took over the mainline routing of US-27 from Lansing northerly to Grayling, however, eight additional Business Connections were added to the list of BUS US-127 routings in the state.
At the southern end of BUS US-127, however, the route remains unidentified on signage along nbd US-127 at Exit 34, which still reads "M-50 – Jackson/Monroe".
