Road Commission not happy with USEPA decision

ISHPEMING — The Marquette County Road Commission is taking another step in trying to get County Road 595 constructed.

The Road Commission, along with Stand U.P., will discuss it’s federal challenge to the USEPA’s decision to block the construction of the road. According to the Commission, the decision was arbitrary and predetermined.

The Road Commission is requesting that the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan set aside the USEPA’s final objection to the permit application and remand the application back the Michigan DEQ.
