GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A construction project on US-131 that has caused traffic headaches for drivers in Grand Rapids for months is coming to an end.
The Michigan Department of Transportation tweeted all lanes will reopen on southbound US-131 from West River Drive to Leonard Street starting Friday afternoon.
The tweet also said the on-ramp from Turner and Ann Street will open back up as well.
MDOT began the $8.5 million construction project in April to help alleviate morning congestion by creating a weave lane from the Ann Street on-ramp to the Leonard Street off-ramp.
However, double lane closures during the project caused daily traffic jams for miles.
