The Israel museum is now open.  They have a limited day schedule.  I was there last night for members only.  Several new exhibits.  Great air conditioning.

Where can one order food in Ashdod with a reliable Mehadrin hashgacha? Rabbinut Mehadrin isn't going to cut it.

We went to Ein Tina the other day. No prebooking but if you go early it's quite empty. It's a masslul in the water so very enjoyable with the heat.

Anyone familiar with Highway 31 down south between Beer Sheva and the Dead Sea, is it a safe road- meaning does it go near Arabs at all?

You're unlikely to find any highway in Israel that doesn't "go near Arabs at all". Nor is that correlated with being a safe road.
If you look on a map, you'll see that 31 passes by Arab/Bedouin towns.
If the questions is whether it goes over the green line, it doesn't.

Short TR- Sorry No Pics Just facts:
Colored Sands Yeruham Israel - shorturl.at/ipzS8

Drove across the desert to Crowne Plaza Dead Sea- Nice Upgraded, nice size room , waterfall shower, make sure to get newly redone rooms ( from Level 8 or so) otherwise it could quite a disaster 
Ein Bokek stream 1 - 2 hour stream hike  through clear "yummy" water- hidden gem right off the highway 90-  2 minute drive from hotel strip ( right past gas station on right - across from hotels Crowne Plaza, Dead Mall etc..) -  and 10 minute drive before  ים המלך separate beach.
