The subject of homes for sale on these two streets came up over the weekend. These streets border the Detroit Golf Club and have some very nice homes. As some might know, access to these two streets is limited and they are no longer thru streets. Are there any west-siders out there who might know the history of the closing off of these two streets (when and why)?

Fairway Drive used to be open at both 6 Mile and 7 Mile. It was a straight shot with no side access streets. When I was in High School it was so exciting to enter at 7 Mile and race all the way to 6 Mile. We didn't care about the residents not liking it and we didn't worry (too much) about having an accident and getting killed. Kinda like teenagers walking in the street today, I suppose.
