Title: Resolution to Approve Street Closures for University of Michigan Football Games for the 2016 Season
Attachments: 1. Main St closure
Resolution to Approve Street Closures for University of Michigan Football Games for the 2016 Season
The attached resolution is to approve a request from the University of Michigan to close E. Keech Street between S. Main and Greene streets, limiting access to parking permit holders on Greene Street from E. Hoover to Keech streets, closing the westbound right turn lane on E. Stadium Boulevard (onto S. Main Street) just south of the Michigan Stadium, and closing S. Main Street to both local and through traffic from Stadium Boulevard to Pauline. These closures would be effective three hours before a game to the end of the game, with the exception of south bound S. Main Street which will be closed beginning one hour before a game to the end of the game. The games for 2016 season are on the following dates:

* 9/3/16
* 9/10/16
* 9/17/16
* 10/1/16
* 10/15/16
* 10/22/16
* 11/5/16
* 11/19/16

The applicant, the University of Michigan, in close collaboration with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Ann Arbor Police and other local law enforcements officials, is seeking to enhance security at Michigan Stadium and for the residents who live in nearby neighborhoods by creating a vehicle-free zone around the Michigan Stadium during Saturday UM Football games. Vehicle access from the neighborhood streets onto the closed area of S. Main Street would be either prohibited or restricted at police-controlled access points depending on the street to accommodate people needing ingress or egress to properties fronting S. Main Street that have no side-street access. The closed portion of these streets will remain available for pedestrian use and emergency vehicle response to the area.
