US 31 to close between US 10, PM Highway for utility work.
AMBER TOWNSHIP — US 31 expressway between US 10 and Pere Marquette Highway will be closed three days over the next couple of weeks to allow for utility work.

- Tuesday, April 23 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., north power line crossing.
- Tuesday, April 30 and Wednesday, May 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., south power line crossing.
The detour will be as follows:
- Northbound US 31: Take Pere Marquette Highway Exit (166) north to US 10. Take US 10 east to US 10-31.
- Southbound US 31: Take US 10 west to Pere Marquette Highway; go south on Pere Marquette Highway to US 31.
