West Stadium work to impact AATA routes

Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AATA) bus routes 8-Pauline, 12UL-Liberty-University and 15-Scio Church-West Stadium have been impacted by the city's reconstruction of West Stadium Boulevard and the intersection of West Stadium and Pauline. The construction area includes the portion of West Stadium between Liberty and Pauline, on which Routes 8 and 12UL normally operate southbound. The city's construction plan allows for traffic only in the northbound direction throughout the project. The intersection work was scheduled to begin April 3, with the West Stadium project due to begin today (April 10). Bus stops on the west side of West Stadium between Liberty and Pauline and on the south side of Pauline between West Stadium and Seventh will not be served for the duration of construction. Detour information is available at (734) 996-0400 and TheRide.org.

Nominations sought for DPS oversight committee

Staff nominations are being accepted for candidates to the Department of Public Safety Oversight Committee. The six-member committee is comprised of two students, two faculty members and two staff members—one union and one non-union—who are nominated and elected by peers for two-year terms. This year the term of the non-union staff member is expiring. The committee considers grievances against any public safety officer deputized by the University, and its findings and recommendations are reported to the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Nominations can be made online through May 5 at www.umich.edu/~hraa/dps. Nominees will be contacted by Staff Human Resources (SHR) for their consent to run in the June election. Appointment of the non-union staff member to the committee takes place in July. For more information contact SHR at (734) 763-2387.

The Fletcher Street access gates will be turned off and monitors will be stationed at the entrance to help control traffic. Due to the increased traffic through the Fletcher entrance/exit, blue and gold permit parkers are encouraged to access the Fletcher structure from the Palmer Street entrance/exit.
