After years of getting hit by tall semi-truck trailers, the 100th Street Bridge over US-131 in southern Kent County has been replaced. We all endured months of construction, along with lane and road closures, but the overpass is now open!
The Michigan Department of Transportation released a map of their 2017 road projects today. If you normally head north on the weekends, it could be a slow go from Grand Rapids up to almost Big Rapids. Three different projects will take place on US-131 beginning in March.
Did you know that the S-Curve on US-131 has an anti-icing system built into the bridge? I didn't, so it was a double shock for me when the Michigan Department of Transportation announced that this winter will be the last time that it will run...
If you thought the 28th street thing was going to be big, you ain't seen nothing yet! MDOT has announced that the US 131 lane adding project will start Monday! Tax Day and A big 131 road construction start! Yes!
