Easy. Go down 75 until you hit the junction for 46 then go across the state on 46 until it joins 131South in Howard City, then a short 30 miles or so and you are right in GR.

It isn't unusual to have to make a corner onto another road or highway to get from one city to another. Kind of a lame slam against a State you obviously don't like.

Interesting that many of the state highway shields tend to take the shape of the state itself, or in the case of Cali the state seal.

The word TOLL used to be on the turnpike signs. They stopped using those because they said it discouraged motorists from using the road.
