US-31 Project Overview Map
US-31 is being reconstructed between 8th Street and Quincy Street and widened to three lanes in each direction between Quincy Street and Lakewood Boulevard. Work began in March with a target completion date of this November. The no left turn restrictions will remain in effect until the project is fully completed. The following update was provided by the Michigan Department of Transportation on 7/29 and 8/1/2016:
The right lane of southbound US-31 will be closed between Quincy and Felch starting Monday 8/1/2016 for work to finish box culvert installation under the median of US-31. The closure will be in place for approximately one week. Just north of Riley Street, towards Quincy Street, MDOT will be setting up a left lane closure on US-31 northbound, for the work around the box culvert replacement. The northbound lane closure will begin 8/1 through 8/3.
MDOT will be switching project phases on Sunday, August 7th. Once everything is in place, southbound traffic will be maintained 2 lanes from just south of New Holland to James Street. The right lane of southbound will be forced to exit onto Lakewood Boulevard. From Lakewood Boulevard south to 8th there will be one lane of southbound traffic. Northbound traffic will be crossed over onto the new southbound roadway just after going through the 16th Avenue intersection. Northbound will be maintained two lanes throughout the project limits. With the change in stages there will also be a change to access at the Lakewood Boulevard and Chicago Drive ramps. During this next stage the ramps at Lakewood Boulevard and Chicago Drive will be open for access to and from southbound US-31. The ramps at Lakewood Boulevard and Chicago Drive to and from northbound will be closed for the entirety of the stage which is expected to last until early-mid October.
