"We are relieved that the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has decided not to issue a permit for CR 595, aka the 'road to nowhere,' but we are well aware the fight isn't over yet," says Margaret Comfort, president of Save the Wild UP.
"This has been a David and Goliath struggle," says Comfort. "Activists throughout the Midwest are watching this issue - would the EPA and the DEQ accomodate of one of the world's largest mining companies and allow them to build a haul road through fragile wetlands? This is a victory for working people and all citizens across the UP: big business lost this round."
"We are so grateful for the support of community members throughout the Upper Great Lakes Region who questioned the wisdom of this 'Wilderness Road.'" Comfort was among hundreds of citizens who attended public hearings, wrote the EPA, and spoke out against the proposed haul road.
