CONSTANTINE (WKZO) -- Road construction projects are wrapping up all over the state as the cold weather is closing in.

One of the biggest summer projects in Southwest Michigan, the 18-million dollar U.S.-131 bypass at Constantine has been completed and is open this morning.

The project, which includes a bridge over the St. Joseph River, eliminates a bottle-neck and dog leg that has slowed traffic at Constantine for decades. It should speed the trip from Kalamazoo to Indiana, keep the heavy trucks out of Constantine and be a boost to regional businesses.
