Tunnel Yard and the Tappan interlocking have changed more this year than since the railroads pulled much of the crossing out from years ago. But go figure, rail traffic is down, delays are less, and now they build the multimillion dollar bridge... now property values will go up, and infrastructure is new and that opens the door to more traffic by road to spur development of the vacant woods and land around the railroad.
Tunnel Yard looking east from Michigan Ave. overpass
Looking north at the bridge.
Looking south from Griswold Rd.
Looking west on the Flint Subdivision, Tappan interlocking, and the Mt. Clemens Sub curving to the left. This line goes to Detroit's once grand Arsenal of Democracy.
The view east again looking at PH&D's former Tappan Yard right, center is the CSX (C&O) interchange tracks, and the far left is the GTW (CN) Tunnel Yard. CSX now owns PH&Ds former trackage all the way to DTE's Belle River power plant.

The Fort Gratiot Light is one of the closest and best lighthouses to visit near the Detroit area. Located just north of the mouth of the St. Clair River it was recently added to the St. Clair County Parks as one of their associated parks. Fishing, swimming, and even overnight lodging in the former USCG barracks are all options in this great park and area of maritime interest in the Bluewater area.
