As the Washtenaw County Road Commission continues to clear trees from several roads where there have been serious accidents, a Dexter woman staged a protest there Monday morning hoping to stop the over 200 year-old tree from being cut down. Hours later, she was gone, and all that remained was a big stump and tree debris.
The Washtenaw County Road Commission is using a federal safety grant to cut downs trees in Dexter. The goal is to create a ten foot safety zone for drivers on Mast Road and North Territorial. But as 89.1 WEMU's Jorge Avellan tells us, some residents oppose the project.
