A $15 million road construction project on U.S. 131 is well under way.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is resurfacing 12 miles of U.S. 131 from Cannonsville Road north to M-46. Traffic is being maintained on U.S. 131 at all times using crossovers, which were constructed last year.

Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane throughout the project, while southbound traffic will remain at two lanes. Ramp closures with posted detours will be used at M-46 and M-82. Bridges over Tamarack Creek and Kendaville Road will be improved and widened.

The park-and-ride near M-82 also will be widened to make room for additional spaces. Interstate Highway Construction Inc. in Owosso is the project’s contractor.

The road work is expected to be completed by Nov. 3.
