New $39M University of Michigan transportation center nearing completion

ANN ARBOR, MI – The University of Michigan’s new $39-million facility to maintain its transportation fleet is nearing completion.

Construction of the facility started last winter, and is on track to be completed in time for a fall opening, according to UM spokeswoman Kim Broekhuizen. The proposed $39-million budget for the project has also stayed steady despite economic factors such as inflation or supply chain issues, officials said.
