MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – State Senator Tom Casperson of Escanaba is urging the public to come out to the hearing.

Casperson says he believes there is a large, silent majority that overwhelmingly approve the construction of County Road 5-95.

The Senator says Marquette County is in dire need of the road and proponents of the project have been patient for many years.  He also says he believes the Marquette County Road Commission has done their research into the possible environmental impact of this road and should be able to complete it with minimal negative affect to area wildlife and natural resources.

The meetings come after a December, 2011 letter at Casperson’s request, signed by 28 of Michigan’s 38 state senators, in support of the EPA giving the necessary permits to construct the road.
