Description:
M-54 is a state trunkline highway approximately long in the US state of Michigan that bypasses the city of Flint. It is named "Dort Highway" in much of its length, named after Flint carriage and automobile pioneer Josiah Dallas Dort, the business partner of General Motors founder William C. Durant. Some portions of M-54 follow the route of the old Dixie Highway, and are still so named in some areas. One portion (the north end of Dort Highway to Clio Road) is part of the historic Saginaw Trail.

Route description

M-54 starts at I-75 exit 109. Dort Highway ends when it intersects with Saginaw Road just north of Mount Morris, then M-54 runs along Saginaw Road. M-54 then becomes part of Clio Road at the Saginaw Road/Clio Road intersection. When it crosses the Saginaw county line it becomes known as Gera Road. At Birch Run Road it turns west and runs concurrently with M-83. This highway technically ends at the so-called "Birch Run spur" or Birch Run Road, ending at the I-75/US 23 junction. Gera Road continues on northward as M-83.
