US 131 reconstruction resumes

After a two-week shutdown on the U.S. 131 redevelopment project in Three Rivers, crews will return to the construction site today to continue the job, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Concerns related to the coronavirus prompted the two-week hiatus, though state officials said weather delays would have resulted in a few lost days over the period.

With the second year of the two-year, $20 million project now resuming, the traffic pattern will continue to see two-way traffic on the southbound lane of the highway.

Some utility relocation is expected likely and a crew will be assigned to road-building north of Coon Hollow Road.

MDOT officials further added that another crew will be laying storm-sewer pipe on Michigan Avenue, east of U.S. 131.

In addition, an electrical subcontractor will be performing traffic-signal work at various locations throughout the 2.3-mile construction zone.
