Phase 2 of road construction starts in Traverse City

TRAVERSE CITY — With Independence Day and the National Cherry Festival over, phase two of the US-31 Grandview Parkway construction has begun.

Paesana’s Pizza, located near the intersection of Grandview Parkway and East Front Street, is already seeing a difference in foot traffic.

“The consistency I think has slowed down a little bit. But I think with what we’ve built over the 42 years, we saw the loyal customers find a way to get here,” said Paesana’s manager Jaiven Thompson. “I think business-wise, obviously the sooner that’s over, the better.”


For the first week of construction, the two southbound lanes of Grandview Parkway from East Front Street to Division Street and the East Front Street intersection will be closed. There will be a detour for pedestrians at two different crosswalks as construction progresses.

The Grandview/Front Street intersection is expected to reopen mid-August, weather permitting. Phase two of the project is expected to last until November.
