M-185 – The Only US Highway That Does Not Allow Motor Vehicles

From wikipedia –

According to the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), M-185 is “the only state highway in the nation where motor vehicles are banned”. These restrictions on automobiles date back to the 1890s, and since the ban, only a few vehicles have been permitted on the island other than the city’s emergency vehicles. M-185 is a state trunkline highway in the U.S. state of Michigan that circles Mackinac Island, a popular tourist destination on the Lake Huron side of the Straits of Mackinac, along the island’s shoreline. A narrow paved road of 8.004 miles (12.881 km), it offers scenic views of the straits that divide the Upper and the Lower peninsulas of Michigan and Lakes Huron and Michigan. It has no connection to any other Michigan state trunkline highways—as it is on an island—and is accessible only by passenger ferry.
