BACKGROUND:
MDOT is partnering with the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians to build a roundabout at the US-31/M-22 intersection.

Roundabouts help prevent severe crashes that often result in injuries or fatalities, while allowing better traffic flow than with a traffic signal. More information about roundabouts is available at www.Michigan.gov/Roundabout.
