December 16, 2020 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has launched an online survey for a segment of US-131 between M-11 (28th Street) and the S-curve (Market Avenue) in Grand Rapids and Wyoming as part of a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study. The PEL process represents a collaborative and integrated approach to transportation decision-making that considers environmental, community, and economic goals, as well as traffic issues, early in the transportation planning process.

The survey, also offered in Spanish (encuesta en linea), is available now through Feb. 8, 2021, and aims to reach a larger and more diverse group of Michigan residents and travelers. This important phase of the study collects input and comments from the public to better identify issues, concerns, and needs of this vital corridor.
