The state has denied Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun a permit to build a bridge between Algonac and Harsens Island.
The island in northern Lake St. Clair is currently only accessible by car ferry or boat.
Most residents don't want a bridge, says Rhonda Wyscaver. She's lived on the island for 27 years.
"We want to keep the island as peaceful as we can," says Wyscaver, a bartender at Sans Souci Bar. "It's growing by leaps and bounds as it is. But, the way we see it, if you want a city life, live in the city."
