Glen Arbor, M-22 open for business

Aaron Selbig

Highway M-22 has reopened near Glen Arbor. It had been closed since Sunday after a storm left hundreds of trees blocking the scenic highway.

Most businesses in Glen Arbor were open Thursday, even without power. Jacob Wheeler publishes the Glen Arbor Sun and says the town wants people to know it is ready for business.

“Glen Arbor business owners and the chamber and The Homestead and the powers that be do not want tourists, potential tourists, dissuaded from coming here,” says Wheeler.

This weekend’s Port Oneida Fair at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is cancelled.

Wheeler says he has not seen estimates of the damage in Leelanau County. In Grand Traverse County, officials say $16 million of damage was done by the storm on Sunday.
