Short detour or alternate route for US-31 traffic headed north for Labor Day weekend

September 03, 2015

Mackinac Bridge Labor Day travelers should be aware of a brief detour on US-31 between Petoskey and Mackinaw City.

US-31 is closed just north of Alanson in southern Emmet County for an emergency repair. A well-marked and brief detour on Milton Road will take US-31 traffic just 1/10th of a mile out of their way to continue their travel. Alternatively, US-31 traffic can take M-68 and I-75 through Indian River, which will add 15 miles to the route and only minutes to the trip.
More information, including a map of the detour and alternate route, are available here: Additional Information
