Resolution to approve an Agreement with the Michigan Department of Transportation for the E. Stadium Boulevard Bridges Replacement Project
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval, please find a resolution that authorizes and directs the Mayor and the City Clerk to execute the standard agreement between the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the City of Ann Arbor for the E.
