U-M Reaches Deal On Game Day Traffic Services

ANN ARBOR (AP) – The University of Michigan has finalized a deal on compensation for signs and city traffic signal services during football games.

University spokesman Jim Kosteva says Friday’s agreement with the city of Ann Arbor allows for one-way traffic on South Main Street between Michigan Avenue and Interstate 94 following each of the eight home games.

The opener is Sept. 3.

Kosteva says the school has asked for the full complement of services for the Sept. 10 game against Notre Dame. The match will be the first night game at Michigan Stadium.

The amount the university will pay was not released.

AnnArbor.com reports that city officials complained the services cost about $100,000 each year.

The agreement is separate from the school’s longstanding policy of paying for extra police on game days.
