Exclamation Michigan Low Bridges

Looking for Some clarification! I will be on my 1000 mi trip to Michgan ( Mackinaw City). In a week. I have my route planned, or so I though but here it goes. From Va Beach heading west and going to make my way up to Columbus Oh to I75. 75 to US23 back to I 75. The concern. US23. Any low bridges. I have an all stays app and don't see anything. I ask a fellow member who searched the same. But have been told outside of AnnArbor 23 N I may have an issue. I am pushing 13'6. 85 tires and GM truck raises me a tad for rail clearance. I will after loading take measurements again before leaving. Any body have first hand knowledge and if there's an issue what would you suggest as an alternate. I appreciate all feedback.

If bridge doesn't say 14' or above I don't go under. If on major roads you shouldn't have a problem. It's those side roads or short cut that can get you in trouble. Don't ask how I know. If coming into a town I don't know & there is a truck by-pass I will take it.

I am out of town right now, and can't get to it to tell you what it says about your route.
