US-31 Rebuilding, Alanson
Start: March 2023 End: November 2023
What Is Being Done?
MDOT plans to rebuild US-31 from Indiana Road to south of the northern Milton Road/US-31 intersection, and M-68 from US-31 to the Crooked River bridge in the village of Alanson and Littlefield Township. This project will include sidewalk improvements, traffic signal improvements, access management changes to driveways and intersections along the route, streetscape improvements, carpool lot paving, and drainage improvements.
The project plan also includes closing Chicago Street between US-31 and Milton Street and extending Bonz Street to the US-31/Pine Street intersection; this would require MDOT to purchase a portion of Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) property.
How Traffic Will Be Affected
This project will require two detours for US-31 traffic: one on River Street, Banwell Road, Milton Street, and M-68, and a second on Milton Street, Powers Road and North Conway Road. Temporary widening with traffic shifts also will be used.
This work will provide a safer and smoother driving surface, and improved safety and convenience for pedestrians.
