PROJECT:
In 2018, MDOT will reconstruct US-131 between 10 Mile and 14 Mile roads. While one side of US-131 is being reconstructed, both directions of traffic will be maintained on the other side of the roadway and separated by a moveable barrier wall. The moveable barrier will cater to predominant traffic movements, with two southbound lanes and one northbound lane open on weekday mornings and Sundays. During weekday afternoons and Fridays, one southbound lane and two northbound lanes will remain open.
