US 131 construction set to begin

Three Rivers is bracing for the first of a two-season project that will focus on an overhaul of U.S. 131.

Michigan Department of Transportation officials said the work will start Monday.

MDOT’s Nick Schirripa said the 2019 construction includes reconfiguring the southern intersection of U.S. 131 and M-60 to a standard signalized intersection, reconstructing the intersection of U.S. 131 and Hoffman Road, and any temporary paving necessary for planned 2020 construction.

He said next year’s projects include constructing a boulevard from Broadway Street to Hoffman Road, removing the northbound M-60 ramp to West Michigan Avenue, adding a shared-use path along northbound U.S. 131 from West Broadway Street to Arnold Street, and a new sidewalk along southbound U.S. 131 from Broadway Street to Kerr Creek Road.

Cost of the two-year project is expected to be about $20 million.
