U.S. 131 project update
The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced an update on construction on U.S. 131 over the next two weeks, as part of the reconstruction of the U.S. 131 corridor through Three Rivers.
This week, roadbuilding and box culvert construction will begin at the W.R. Monroe Boulevard area, as well as general roadbuilding. Permanent signal work at the U.S. 131/M-60 interchange will continue during this time.
On the north end of the project this week, asphalt paving is slated to begin late in the week at the Rocky River/Hoffman Road area. The northbound end of the Rocky River Bridge on U.S. 131, which has been closed for the majority of the project, will remain closed until the paving work is completed. Ditch restoration work, which will include seeding, fertilizing, and putting down a mulch blanket, will also be underway, starting at the north end of the project and working south.
Next week, roadbuilding, culvert construction and signal work will continue on the south end of the project. Utility relocation work remains ongoing throughout the project in both weeks, while ditch restoration work starting this week will continue if necessary.
