FIFE LAKE – The Michigan Department of Transportation announced the construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of US-131, M-186 and West State Street in the Grand Traverse County community of Fife Lake.

The final stage of the project is expected to start July 13 and will warp up at the end of the month. This new roundabout will help prevent severe crashes at this intersection, while maintaining traffic flow.


The $1.8 million project will include new concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk, culverts, sewer and drainage upgrades, and new signs and pavement markings.



During this final stage of construction, 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 but stop signs for US-131 traffic at the M-113 intersection will be removed.
