A2: Stadium Bridges

As part of a series profiling winners of the U.S. Dept. of Transportation’s TIGER grants. a post in the Transportation for America blog focuses on Ann Arbor’s Stadium Bridges. From the post: “More than 48,000 vehicles traverse the bridges each day, but the original 4 lanes of traffic were reduced to just one lane in each direction after a January 2009 inspection revealed a safety hazard in the eastbound direction. The bridges also connect the 109,901 seat Big House, Michigan’s football stadium, as well as 42,000 students and 35,000 University of Michigan staff. ‘It’s been a problem for my people in Ann Arbor for as long as I’ve served Ann Arbor,’ said Congressman John Dingell at an event last month.” [Source]
