WAYLAND, Mich. — Starting at 6 p.m. Friday July 10, through 5 a.m. Monday July 13, US-131 will be closed while crews work on the 100th Street Bridge.
Starting Friday at 6 p.m. through 5 a.m. Monday, the freeway will be closed for beam setting and traffic will use the off and on ramps at 100th Street to continue on US-131.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) said during this time, access to and from 100th Street will not be allowed.
Then starting at 6 a.m. on Monday, July 13, the off-ramp from southbound US-131 to 100th Street will close until August.
The 100th Street bridge over US-131 remains closed until October.
MDOT is working to replace the 100th Street bridge and reconstruct the interchange.
The project was suspended back in April due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. MDOT is investing approximately $10.5 million in the project.
The new bridge will be double the width of the old and will have two additional lanes as well as a non-motorized path. The project will also raise the height of the bridge by two and a half feet.
The 100th Street bridge has been a topic of conversation after it was hit at least eight times by trucks in 2018.
While the off-ramp is closed there is a detour for drivers to exit at 84th Street and head south on either Clyde Park Avenue or Division Avenue to 100th Street.
