Route 1 Permanent Detour
Well it looks like the City of Marshall has permanently closed a portion of C Drive North which is part of the Great Lake-to-Lake Trail Route 1 between Marshall and Ceresco to the west. Marshall closed, abandoned, and then gave the road to Ford Motor Company for their new battery plant. You can read the story here.
There were precious few good ways into Marshall from the east, and now there is one less. The Route 1 map has been changed to show the new section in pink. You can see it here.
