Police deal with pre-game traffic, crashes around Michigan Stadium
Ann Arbor police are dealing with pre-game traffic this afternoon, which they say is especially bad at Packard and State streets and State Street and Hoover Avenue.
Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Mike Lance says traffic is grid-locked near the University of Michigan Stadium, and officers are conducting traffic control near the intersection of Main Street and Stadium Boulevard.
Lance said officers responded to a traffic crash involving a motorcycle and a vehicle near Huron Street and Glen Avenue. The motorcyclist was transported to the U-M Hospital, but no further details are available at this time.
According to an official with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office, three traffic crashes occurred at about 1 p.m.: Officials responded to a vehicle-deer crash on I-94 east of Zeeb Road, a two-vehicle crash on I-94 west of M-14, and a two-vehicle crash on southbound US-23 near 6 Mile. No one was injured, and no road closures resulted from the crashes.
Lance's message to motorists and game-goers: "Be patient, you will get to the game eventually."
And, he added, "Be prepared to walk."
The game starts at 3:30 p.m.
