Real estate blog Curbed Detroit caught some guff last year for a headline on a story about a developer’s plans to construct an entertainment district in Grosse Pointe Park that would effectively cut off access on Kercheval to and from Detroit.

The theme of that headline, “Cut the Road: Grosse Pointe Park Retail Doesn’t Want Detroit,” was reprised last week when a photo surfaced of a snow pile dumped across Kercheval.

The way we at the Hits understand things, it’s not exactly kosher to set up a blockade of snow along a main corridor in town. But the Grosse Pointe Park public works department told us it’s how they run the shop.

“We push (the snow) to the end of the road,” a rep from the department says, adding, “We end up removing it afterwards.”
