MDOT continues repair work on U.S. 10, 31

September 28, 2018

AMBER TOWNSHIP — Road work on U.S. 10 between Ludington and Scottville has resulted in intermittent lane closures throughout the week, but the work should be completed within the two weeks, according to officials.

Traffic has been restricted to one lane in patches along the eastbound side of the highway for several days as workers have been drilling into the pavement on the side of the road to make repairs to 30 broken catch basins between the U.S. 31 juncture west of Meijer in Amber Township and Scottville, according to John Richard, MDOT communications representative.

“We’re fixing catch basins in the area (to) repair some drainage structures… so pretty basic stuff,” Richard said. “They’re going to be bouncing back and forth between eastbound and westbound (lanes).”

Work on U.S. 10 wrapped up for the time being Thursday, but on Friday workers will move on to a section of U.S. 31 east of Quarterline Road, where Mason County Road Commission Managing Director Mary Samuels said the crew will fix two basins before returning to U.S. 10.
