The I-69 International Trade Corridor and I-75 from Flint to Detroit has been left off a key list of freight highways by the federal government.

According to MLive, the U.S. Department of Transportation has left I-69 from Lansing to the Blue Water Bridge off a proposed Primary Freight Network designating the most critical freight highways in the country.

Business and government officials are upset regarding the exclusion even though funding is not tied to the designation. Janice Karcher, vice president of economic development at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce told Mlive “we’ve done a lot of work to promote the significance of the corridor. It is a corridor of importance with accessibility to Ontario and beyond.”

The chamber, state of Michigan, Flint Mayor Dayne Walling and the county Board of Commissioners have all filed comments about the Primary Freight Network before the public comment period ends tomorrow.
