...and staying for a long time
N3-We bipeninsularians are well aware that as the weather pattern transforms into the magic of a Michigan summer the landscape comes alive with flowers, greenery, fruits, veggies…
And those classic orange barrels announcing the blossoming of road work.
And this is a big one with the much needed redos on the main roads to and through Newaygo disrupting the usual travel times and hopefully not putting too much of a pause on the patience of the populace
Yes, one can expect tangled traffic and its partner the lengthy wait times designed to discompose drivers. who just want to get from one place to another.
Here’s hoping we get through this with our collective good humor intact while continuing the frequent patronage of the enticing array of downtown businesses in our beloved riverside burg.
Here’s the skinny from MDOT:
Northbound M-37 will be closed from Quarterline Street to Water Street 7 a.m. this Monday through October. Traffic will be detoured on Quarterline, Justice and Water streets. Lane closures will also be in effect on northbound and southbound M-37 between the Muskegon River and the south junction of M-37/M-82.
M-82 lane closures will be in place from M-37 to Park Street.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing $3.4 million to improve approximately 2 miles of M-37/M-82 from the Muskegon River to the M-37/M-82 south junction in the city of Newaygo. M-82 will also be resurfaced from M-37 to just east of Park Street. Work includes rebuilding, resurfacing, new watermain, drainage improvements, sidewalk work, and traffic signal modernization at Quarterline Street.
Lane closures and traffic shifts will be in effect throughout the project. Northbound traffic will be detoured onto Quarterline, Justice and Water streets.
Long-term benefits include improvements to vehicle safety and operations, as well as extending the service life of the roadway and utilities.
