Next Phase of US-31 Construction To Begin March 18th in Petoskey
The next phase of the US-31 reconstruction project in Petoskey is expected to begin March 18th, requiring a detour for northbound traffic until late June.
Construction began in early February on the $11.2 million project to rebuild and realign US-31 between the Mitchell Street Bridge and Fairview Avenue.
It also included initial work on the retaining wall along Bayfront Drive below the highway.
And as crews begin the reconstruction work along the bluff, northbound US-31 traffic will detour on Mitchell Street, Division Street, Arlington Avenue, and MacDonald Drive.
Southbound US-31 traffic will remain on US-31.
The detour is expected to remain in place until late June and Bayfront Drive is expected to be reopened to traffic by May 1st.
The entire project, however, is expected to be completed by late September.
