More Construction on U.S. 131 Near Manistee River Bridge
Construction vehicles and a line of cars waiting to get through; it's a sight many drivers did not think they would see on U.S. 131 after the bridge re-opened last week. But now, drivers face more construction, right near the Manistee River in Wexford County. Eight months of detours ended last week. The bridge project finished ahead of schedule, a pleasant surprise for drivers who frequently use U.S. 131. But the road crews aren't gone yet. MDOT tells 9 and 10 news this new road construction project will be finished by mid-June. 9&10'S Jodi Hathaway and photojournalist Joel Deaner have more details on this latest round of construction.
