Memorandum

The attached resolution is requesting approval to close various streets and provide other services to accommodate the annual Dexter-Ann Arbor running races sponsored by the Ann Arbor Track Club on Sunday, June 5, 2022.  The races involve more than 5,000 participants and volunteers.  Proceeds benefit the Hope Clinic and Karen’s Trail.

 

If permitted, the Races will require closing of the following streets and service parking lots on June 5, 2022:

 

                     N. Main Street from Miller/Catherine to Huron Street from 6:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

                     N. Main Street from Kingsley Street to Miller from 7:00 A.M. to Noon

                     M-14 off ramp to Southbound Main Street from 7:30 AM to Noon

                     Southbound lanes of N. Main Street from Kingsley to Huron River Drive from 7:00 A.M. to Noon (one northbound lane will be converted to southbound travel, vehicles will be permitted to exit driveways when clear)

                     The surface parking lot at Ann Street and N. Main Street from 4:00 P.M. on Friday, June 3 until 4:00 P.M. on Saturday, June 4, 2022

                     Ann Street from N. Ashley Street to N. Fourth Ave. from 6:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

                     Huron River Dr. from 7:45 A.M. to 11:30 A.M.

o                     Summit Street from Wildt Street to N. Fourth Avenue

 

MDOT has given tentative approval for the M-14 off ramp closure to Southbound Main Street, however approval from the City is required prior to MDOT issuing a permit for the ramp closure.  The applicant will apply for a temporary liquor license, should conditions allow for gathering in a beer tent at that time.  Therefore, the Ann Arbor Track Club must submit an application for approval from the State of Michigan Liquor Control Commission for temporary sales, service and consumption of alcoholic beverages in the defined areas pursuant to the Michigan Liquor Control Commission regulations.

 

All streets will open as soon as safely possible.  Participants will be directed to sidewalks as the race nears its end.  There will be no post-race activities as has been in the past.

 

The sponsor agrees to obtain all necessary permits, to provide evidence of proper liability insurance as required, to comply with all City regulations governing the use of the streets, and will reimburse the City for all event expenses.

 

Official notification of the street closings will be provided through the City’s website, GovDelivery and the applicant’s use of press releases, runner websites and social media.

 

This event has been coordinated with all relevant City service areas for the purposes of traffic control and for the protection of the health and safety of the participants and the general public.
