The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $1.1 million to replace the culvert on US-31 BR over Russell Creek in the city of Hart.
During construction, US-31 BR will be closed between the US-31 northbound ramps and Comfort Drive (approximately 700 feet east of the northbound US-31 ramps). Traffic will be detoured via US-31, Monroe Road, and Old US-31 (Oceana Drive). Access will always be maintained to homes and businesses. Alternate detour: Take the Hart exit at Polk Road (Exit 149) and head west to northbound 56th Avenue, east on Tyler Road and south on 72nd Avenue.
This project involves replacing the original culvert from 1976 to ensure proper flow and drainage underneath the roadway.
