Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is just six miles northeast of Traverse City, Michigan and only 10 minutes from Traverse City’s Cherry Capital Airport, which is serviced by many major carriers. For guests who are flying in, we offer complimentary Airport Shuttle service to and from the Resort. Detroit and Chicago are within a 4-to-6 hour drive… but northern Michigan is a world away from the metropolitan hustle and bustle.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has started construction on 1.5 miles of US-31 in East Bay Township, just east of Traverse City, from Three Mile Road to Holiday Road. This project includes replacing the roadway, replacing curb and gutter, improving drainage, interconnecting all sidewalks, and upgrading traffic signals.
This portion of the project is scheduled to be completed before July 4.
If construction is not complete by July 4, all traffic restrictions will be removed and construction will resume after Labor Day.
This work will require lane closures, with one lane open in each direction throughout construction. Access to driveways and businesses will be maintained at all times. Delays are expected, with longer delays anticipated during peak traffic periods. You can find up to date traffic maps here.

"Travel is restricted to one lane in each direction – but motorists can know exactly how fast that traffic is moving and the estimated travel time through that construction corridor via a “travel time indicator” at GTRoadWork.com – a new website created to give motorists easy access to road construction information." - TC Ticker, April 8, 2015
