--- Quote from: SkyPesos on September 27, 2021, 07:25:53 PM ---Looking at M-59 east of Utica and its abnormally wide median, are there long-term plans to turn it into a freeway all the way east to I-94? The median alone could fit a 6 lane freeway, and taking away two of the four lanes from each side of the "frontage road", you can get a 8-10 lane freeway just from its current ROW.

I remember when they were building the M-59 trench in Utica, thinking it would be a freeway at least to M-53 and possibly to I-94.  I can't believe they ended the freeway where they did, short of M-53.  Then again, MDOT rarely, if ever, does anything right!

It's all about things falling into their budget. The traffic light at M-59 and Van Dyke really puts M-59 traffic at a standstill.

wanderer2575:
The Mackinac Bridge Authority will be reinstating its Driver Assistance program on November 1st.  The program was suspended in March 2020 due to COVID-19.  It provides an Authority staffer to drive your car across the bridge, for those who have fears of driving across themselves or who want to concentrate on the scenery instead.

There will now be a $10 fee, increasing to $15 in 2025 (used to be free).  There will also be increased fees for transporting pedestrians, bicycles, and snowmobiles (none of which are usually allowed to cross the bridge on their own).
