The bridge rehabilitation work on the US-31 Bascule Bridge over Grand River and five other structures nearby on US-31 and M-104 will soon resume in Grand Haven, Ferrysburg and the Village of Spring Lake.

Bridge construction is set to resume on Feb. 27, 2022. Work on southbound US-31 is planned for March 1, 2022.
