Back in the 1970's, when I 475 thru Flint was connected, the GTW old main was not connected. I'm not sure if it was severed a few years before (truncating at the Flint River E of Grand Traverse and near Lewis (now Chavez), perhaps Elba Steve can answer specifically), but I'm sure that, as I 475 was years in the planning and making, the decision would have been made somewhere in the process that no need to keep the Old Main in tact, no expensive rail bridge over I 475, etc.
