The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $4.4 million to repave and widen nearly 2.5 miles of US-31 from east of Sullivan Road to M-37 (Chums Corner). When complete, this section of US-31 will include a center left-turn lane, as well as new concrete curb and gutter sections, culverts, drainage improvements, and water main replacements.
During most of construction, two-lane, two-way traffic will be maintained, with some single-lane closures with traffic regulators required intermittently. Work will begin with utility relocation work that will only require shoulder closures.
This project includes a new center left-turn lane, closure and creation of a cul de sac for the Curtis Road intersection with US-31, realignment of the Sawyer Road intersection with US-31, and new pavement markings and signs.
