HOLLAND, Mich. — Drivers who use US-31 northbound in Holland will experience déjà vu beginning Monday, March 21.

The Michigan Department of Transportation first announced the project would begin March 14 but issued notice Friday afternoon the start date was March 21.

US-31 northbound will be closed from the I-196 split to Central Avenue during the entire 2022 construction season.

In 2021, US-31 northbound was also closed at I-196 for a project on I-196.

The Michigan Department of Transportation has not yet said how southbound US-31 will be affected. The plan for this year calls for both sides of the freeway to be reconstructed between I-196 and Central Avenue.

The season-long detour will require traffic headed for Holland to continue north and east on I-196, exit at M-40, to go north on M-40 Lincoln Road back to US-31.
