ANN ARBOR, Mich. -

In an effort to enhance overall security around Michigan Stadium, the Ann Arbor City Council has authorized street closings in the vicinity of Michigan Stadium on all football Saturday home game days this season, beginning with this Saturday, Aug. 31

Scheduled lane closures include: East Keech Street between South Main and Greene streets, limiting access to parking permit holders on Greene Street from East Hoover to Keech streets; the westbound right-turn lane on East Stadium Boulevard (onto South Main Street) just south of the Michigan stadium; South Main Street between Pauline and Stadium. The duration of these closures will be three hours before each home football game until the end of each game, with the exception of southbound South Main Street, which will be closed one hour prior to the game until the end of each game. This will enable patrons to access neighborhood parking areas west of the stadium. Provisions will also be made for properties with access exclusively on Main Street.

Traffic will be detoured using Pauline Street and Seventh. After the game, or at the discretion of the Chief of Police, barricades will be removed as soon as practical, and Main Street will reopened.
