AMBER TOWNSHIP — Motorists on US 10-31 should be noticing a gentle reminder of their speed. Recently, Michigan Department of Transportation, with cooperation of Mason County Sheriff’s Office, installed three digital speed signs, two on westbound US 10-31 west of Scottville and west of Stiles Road, and one on eastbound US 10-31 near Dennis Road.

The highway is officially designated US 10-31 because US 31 combines with US 10 between the end of the expressway and the Scottville bypass.

Sheriff Cole said the project was paid for through state funds, not local funds. The signs do not record or photograph. “They simply serve as a reminder to the motorists of their speed,” Cole said. “My hope is that the motoring public will help us keep this stretch of highway safe by policing themselves.”

Cole said he is thankful to MDOT for securing the equipment, which will be permanent fixtures to the highway.
