Concrete repairs, detour start July 16 for Chums Corner intersection
July 07, 2023
GAYLORD, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will make full-depth concrete repairs and seal joints at the US-31/M-37/Beitner Road (Chums Corner) intersection in Grand Traverse County. MDOT previously upgraded the traffic signals at the intersection and added new pedestrian crossing signals and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant sidewalk ramps.
Sunday, July 16, 2023
Estimated end date:
Friday, July 28, 2023
To expedite this project, and to allow cure time for new concrete, MDOT is working with the Grand Traverse County Road Commission to detour northbound and southbound US-31 traffic on Rennie School Road and East Silver Lake Road, and Beitner Road traffic on Williams Road and Rennie School Road. Northbound and southbound M-37 traffic will continue to use the Chums Corner intersection but will not be permitted to make turns.
In preparation for the detour, MDOT has added left-turn phases at the US-31/Rennie School Road traffic signal. The left-turn signals for US-31 traffic will remain following construction.
Access to all businesses and residences in the area will be maintained.
This work will improve the driving surface of the road and extend the life of the roadway.
