This eliminated BUSN Loop I-94. BUSN U.S. Rt. 131, and Michigan State Route 43 were eliminated within the city. BUSN U.S. Rt. 131 now runs as a short spur on the north of the city. Michigan State Route 43 was rerouted along U.S. Rt. 131 to Michigan State Route 89. BUSN Spur I-94 and Michigan State Route 343 were created to take the numbering of the highways the state retained where the other highways were removed.
