THE 107th ENGINEER HIGHWAY

There are many unique ways of commemorating the accomplishments of an organization.  Surely one of the most unique is the 107th Engineers Highway (M107).  It runs from Silver City into the heart of Porcupine Mountains.  In 1954, the highway was dedicated to memory of the 107th during a special ceremony.  At approximately the midpoint of the seven-mile long highway stands a historic memorial to the organization.  When the highway was dedicated, one veteran recalled that 'we like the thought that is small in length, but passed through a rugged terrain. It fits our outfit perfectly, as while we were small in numbers, we were big in rugged Engineering accomplishments.'  

The memorial as it stands today.  Inscribed on the plaque reads:

“THE 107TH ENGINEER MEMORIAL HIGHWAY
DEDICATED TO
THE COMBAT ENGINEERS OF
WORLD WAR 1 AND WORLD WAR 2
1954”
