MDOT Adding Left-Turn Signals at US-31/Silver Lake Road This Week

By Beth Milligan | Dec. 4, 2023

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be adding left-turn signals at the US-31/Silver Lake Road intersection in Grawn this week.

The new signals will "provide steady red, steady and flashing yellow, and steady green left-turn arrows for US-31 traffic in both directions, as well as a signal providing a separate right-turn phase for southbound Silver Lake Road traffic turning onto US-31," according to an MDOT release. "Due to the railroad crossing and advance signals on the south leg of the intersection, the protected right-turn signal will not be installed for northbound Silver Lake Road traffic."

Work is expected to start Wednesday and be completed by the end of the day Thursday. The project will require short-duration lane shifts and lane closures as the new signal heads are installed. The safety benefit of the new signals is that they'll provide "an opportunity for vehicles on US-31 to turn left onto Silver Lake Road while opposing traffic is stopped," according to MDOT.
