I second this, their latest fries are awful. Last ones were great.

it was a serious proposal. The DOT ultimately chose to build the suspension bridge over the causeway. It was nearly a 50/50 split in cost and complexity according to a couple of different articles. Several proposals also considered a second deck on the suspension bridge for rail.

only thought is maybe the depth of the lake is less going through the islands than the straights of mackinac.

I actually have a blueprint of a proposed causeway linking St Ignace and Cheboygan

Cheboygan-Bois Blanc Island-Round Island-Mackinac Island-St. Ignace. The Bridge Route. Get rid of all those darn ferries :lol:

I will never understand why some people have a boner for passenger service to TC and beyond. I’m a railfan as much as anyone here but there’s no way. It’s been studied over and over, anyone who tries it will be bankrupt in a year or less.

~Z~, if dalek ling keeps posting about resurrecting passenger service on the line from Ste. St. Marie to anywhere, we might have to put him on the NOOB list LOL
