Ann Arbor Pays to Use Parcel for Bridge Staging

At its July 18, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor city council approved a $70,000 payment to the owner of the parcel at 1501 S. State St., for use as a construction staging area for the East Stadium bridges reconstruction project. The parcel is located immediately adjacent to the bridge over State Street, east of State Street and south of Stadium Boulevard. The money for the use agreement will come from the city’s street repair millage.

Construction on the bridge project is expected to start in the fall of 2011.

This brief was filed from the city council’s chambers on the second floor of city hall, located at 301 E. Huron. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
