M-231 near Nunica, Ottawa County


M-231 project openThe Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), in partnership with Ottawa County and the townships of Robinson and Crockery, is pleased to open the new M-231 route. The road officially opened to traffic at approximately 4 p.m. Friday, October 30. M-231 is 7 miles long and connects M-45 (Lake Michigan Drive) in Robinson Township to M-104/I-96 in Crockery Township. The two-lane route provides a much-needed additional crossing of the Grand River and will alleviate congestion in Ottawa County, consistently one of the fastest growing counties in Michigan.

"Life-saving minutes, commute times and congestion relief are just a few of the benefits this new road will provide," said State Rep. Amanda Price. "This is a great collaboration on the federal, state and local levels, and we are very pleased to open this new road to the state of Michigan."
