Repair to Pavement Joints on US-31 North in Traverse City is Underway

Work to fix pavement joints on US-31 in Traverse City is underway.

The repairs are being done between Three Mile road and the City Limits and there will be lane shifts.

The Grand Traverse County Road Commission say MDOT wants these repairs to be done for safety reasons until next year’s construction project.

A business near the roadwork told us what traffic has been like since the work began.

“Its been very busy with the construction today and then its been a lot of challenges for our patients to come in, we’ve had a couple of cars use our parking lot for cutting through,” said Connie Kuhlman, Office Manager at East Bay Family Dentistry.

The road commission says the best way to avoid delays and congestion is to find a different route.

The work is expected to be finished by the beginning of next week.
