The Mackinac Bridge is closed so we are basically surrounded by closures, No way out lol
Timbob 1/24/2014 6:13:49 PM Report

Give me a snowplow and I'll make a way out. Ridiculous!
RonBes 1/24/2014 7:44:55 PM Report

That's what happens when the government outsources highway maintenance to private companies.
Vmax-4 1/24/2014 8:19:49 PM Report

I agree that the outsourced highway maintenance is not working but I think the current reason for the majority of the closures is zero visibility.
Timbob 1/24/2014 10:00:11 PM Report

Zero visibility? Give me a break.

More like fumbling bureaucrats and over-paid babysitters who act like we live in Florida.
Vmax-4 1/24/2014 10:13:19 PM Report

Well TimBob I guess you know it all, even more than the people who were on the highway today and said the visibility was terrible. No point in attempting to carry on an intelligent conversation with you.
