Southbound US-131 Construction from Ann St. to Pearl St.
Investment: $8.5 million
This project will include:
Constructing a connector lane to join the interchanges of Ann Street and Leonard Street on southbound US-131. This will mirror what was constructed in 2013 on northbound US-131 connecting Leonard Street to Ann Street; and
Bridge improvements on southbound US-131 over Richmond Street and Indian Mill Creek/Grand Rapids Eastern Railroad will include widening, deck replacement, and substructure work.
Lane closures will be used throughout the project on US-131. Some local roads will be closed and detoured.
The following ramps will be closed during different stages of the project:
- The Turner Avenue (just north of Ann Street) ramp to southbound US-131;
- The southbound US-131 ramp to Leonard Street;
- The eastbound I-196 ramp to southbound US-131; and
- The southbound US-131 ramp to Pearl Street.
Throughout the duration of the project, a double lane closure will be in place on the weekends from W. River Dr. to Pearl Street, and a single lane closure will be in place weekdays from W. River Dr. to Leonard Street.
The Turner Ave on-ramp (just north of Ann Street) will be closed until mid-July. The southbound US-131 off-ramp to Leonard Street will be closed until mid-July.
