Construction to start on US131 north of Sand Lake


Commuters traveling US131 north of Sand Lake need to be prepared—reconstruction starts Monday on a 12-mile stretch that won’t be completed until next fall.

According to the Michigan Department of Transportation, the work will be done from Cannonsville Road north to M-46. Bridges over Tamarack Creek and Kendaville Road will be improved and widened, as will the freeway access ramps there.

Northbound traffic will be down to one lane, and will use crossovers. Ramp closures with posted detours will be used at M-82 and M-46.

The work is not expected to be completed until November 3.
