Those of you who travel US-131 through or out of Three Rivers may want to take notice that a two-year project to reconstruct US-131 in Three Rivers and realign the intersection with M-60 begins soon. The Michigan Department of Transportation has made plans this year to reconstruct the area of US-131 where M-60 splits off and heads west towards Jones, Cassopolis and Niles, according to FOX 17. The intersection of US-131 and Hoffman Road will also be redesigned as well.

As it sits today, the US-131/M-60 interchange has no signals, with eastbound M-60 swinging north to merge with 131. Once the reconfiguration has taken place and completed, eastbound M-60 will meet 131 in a perpendicular intersection with a traffic signal being installed. Traffic signals will also be implemented at a new Michigan turn around that will be installed, north of the M-60/131 intersection and at Broadway Road. Although no date has been set on this additional project, MDOT is also planning to reconstruct the bridge deck on US-131 over the Rocky River.
