Businesses Want Road Construction in Petoskey to End Soon

Posted: Updated:
The work to reconstruct US-31 has so far replaced the sidewalks and half the roadway and blocked access to quite a few businesses in the process.

The project is nearing its July 4th completion date, and the businesses in Petoskey cannot wait for that day to get here.

The work began back in April and started with one lane of the highway but has since flipped giving the businesses on the north side of the road some relief and blocking those on the south.

But still, nobody is booming with this obstacle out front.

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jacob Johnson spoke to some anxious business owners and have more details.
