Fife Lake Roundabout Construction Starts April 15, Detour Map Released

By Beth Milligan | April 6, 2019

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will start construction on a $1.8 million new roundabout at the intersection of US-131, M-186, and West State Street in Fife Lake on April 15.

The project will include new concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk, culverts, sewer and drainage upgrades, and new signs and pavement markings. Construction is expected to last through July 27. Work will require several stages of construction and detours:

>During stages 1 and 2, M-186 will be closed to through-traffic between US-131 and M-113 to the west of the roundabout, with a detour on M-113 and US-131. Local traffic on M-186 will be maintained. These stages are expected to start April 15 and be completed in mid-May.

> During Stage 3, US-131 will be closed to through-traffic between M-186 and M-113 to the south of the roundabout, with traffic detoured on M-113 and M-186. Local traffic on US-131 will be maintained. A temporary traffic signal will be placed at the M-113/M-186 intersection, and a temporary all-way stop will be in place at the US-131/M-113 intersection. This stage is expected to start in mid-May and be completed in early July.

>During Stage 4, southbound US-131 traffic will be detoured on M-186 and M-113, while northbound US-131 traffic will be maintained on US-131 through a portion of the new roundabout. The temporary traffic signal at the M-113/M-186 intersection will remain in place, as will the all-way stop at the US-131/M-113 intersection. This stage is expected to start in early July and be completed by July 27.
