Summer in Michigan means construction time! This weekend MDOT will have a few areas closed on the major highways as they continue to do road work.  Here’s your heads up of areas to avoid this weekend::

131

Northbound 131 from 28th street through Pearl will be one lane all weekend starting Friday at 10pm until 5am Monday

On southbound 131 - the ramp to Franklin will be closed from 10pm Friday through 5am Monday

Also along southbound 131 from Ann Street to Pearl Street, it will be one lane from 5am to 1pm Saturday with the ramp to westbound 196 (Ford) closed.

196 (Ford) 

196, both directions at Fuller Avenue, just east of the bridge will see 5 minute closures a few times from 7am to 8am as they string power lines across the roadway.

Otherwise just remember:

The Leonard Street Bridge over the Grand River is closed unitl Labor day

And Market Street ramp from southbound 131 will remain closed until Labor day as well, so if you’re coming downtown you’ll either want to get off at Pearl  and follow that down to Fulton or take the Wealthy Street detour that is marked.
