MDOT US-31 Detour Updates

The MDOT US-31 reconstruction and realignment project in Petoskey is underway, requiring a detour for northbound traffic until late June.  In addition to the northbound detour, beginning April 15, southbound US-31 traffic will also be detoured on West Lake Street to Ingalls Avenue up to US-31.

The next phase of the project is to reconstruct and realign US-31 between the Mitchell Street Bridge and Fairview Avenue.  Crews will begin reconstructing the highway between the Mitchell Street Bridge and Lake Street. 

Traffic restrictions beginning Tuesday, April 15, 2019, weather and construction permitting:
  • Southbound US-31 traffic will be detoured on Lake Street and Ingalls Avenue, back to US-31.
  • Westbound traffic on Mitchell Street bound for US-31 will be routed north on Petoskey Street and Lake Street to US-31.
  • Northbound US-31 traffic will remain detoured on Mitchell Street, Division Street, Arlington Avenue and MacDonald Drive until late June.

The detour is expected to remain in place until late June. The entire project is expected to be completed by late September.
