US-12 resurfacing and railroad crossing repairs
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Mich. -- The Michigan Department of Transportation announced a 3.7 mile stretch of US-12 will undergo resurfacing and railroad crossing repairs that will begin on Monday.
This $972,000 investment includes milling and resurfacing, sidewalk ramp upgrades, and new pavement markings on US-12 from the Grand Elk Railroad to Fairview Drive.
The project will also include improvements to the US-12 and US-131 Grand Elk Railroad crossings.
MDOT says these repairs will improve the safety measures and travel quality for drivers, add more safe accessibility for pedestrians and extend the life of the roadway.
Resurfacing efforts will cause there to be single-lane closures on US-12 with traffic regulators.
The resurfacing construction is estimated to be completed by October 1.
US-12 at Grand Elk Railroad will be closed from July 26 to August 1 with a detour posted on US-131, Indian Prairie Road, and Kalamazoo Street.
US-131 at Grand Elk Railroad will be closed from August 2 to 11 with a detour posted on US-12, Indian Prairie Road, and Kalamazoo Street.
