As part of the three-phase project to
alleviate the traffic congestion near the
Replacement Hospital Project, a large
portion of Fuller Road between North
and Central Campus will be closed off
beginning today and continuing through
December.
The traffic diversion from Fuller
Road will allow construction of the
Fuller Bridge and the surrounding
roads to be completed, according to
Ann Arbor City Engineer Leigh Chizek.
THE DETOURS will reroute traffic
from Fuller Road to the new West Loop
Road over the Nichols Bridge to
Catherine. This second phase will be in
effect until early December, Chizek
said. The first phase was the construc-
tion of the Nichols and Maiden Lane
Bridges.
The $7-million project to reroute the
traffic was approved five years ago
because of bottlenecks and delays
caused by too much traffic in the area
of the old Fuller Street bridge and the
University hospital, Chizek said. He
estimated that 22,000 cars across the
bridge each day.
ccident
learning for characters, structures and
themes. But his novels also showed a
wide range of language, themes and
tones.
"The Sunlight Dialogues" made the
bestseller lists in 1972, a sprawling saga
that drew comparisons with Melville,
James and Faulkner. The novel
focuses on a jail escape, the Sunlight
Man, who in a Cain-like fall from grace
has become a demonic anarchistic
magician. Critics said the character
embodied the restlessness of the
American spirit.
THE 1976 novel "October Light" won
a National Book Critics Award for fic-
tion. Set in rural Vermont, it tells of the
battles between an elderly hot-
tempered and conservative widower
and his widowed sister. They live
together, but she goes on strike against
him after he shoots out her television
set. She spends her days locked in her
room, reading a deliberately trashy
novel within the novel.

The original Fuller Road traffic
redirection would have stretched the
road across the Fuller Recreation Area
or widened it along its original route.
The proposals met with opposition from
citizens groups who objected to altering
the parkland, Chizek said.
The plans were then changed by the
Urban Area Transportation Study, to
another proposal designed, instead of

widening the road, to allow construe-
tion of a special lane for "high. og-
cupancy vehicles"-such as buses and.
carpools, Chizek said, adding that a
bike path and wide sidewalks are also
planned.
Chizek estimated that the traffic
redirection project would be completed
sometime this spring.

Author Gardner dies

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP)- Author
John Gardner, who used his skills as a
classicist to become one of America's
most innovative contemporary writers,
was killed in a motorcycle accident
yesterday, officials said.
The silver-haired novelist, critic and
poet was 49.

The accident occurred in Oakland
Township in Susquehanna County, Pa.,
about two miles from Gardner's Pen-
nsylvania home, said Dr. John Conar-
ton, county coroner.
GARDNER, author of "The Sunlight
Dialogues," "October Light," and
other novels, had been head of the

Students gain in changing
Ann Arbor housing market

U.

(Continued from Page 1)
THIS TREND has been a cause for con-
cern among local landlords. "If people
are looking out there," she said,
"they're obviously not looking around
here."
In the scramble to rent to those
students who were returning to Ann Ar-
bor this fall without a lease, many lan-
dlords offered incentives such as
scholarships and television sets, said
Housing Advisor Brenda Herman.
DURING THE summer, the Wilson
White Company distributed flyers ad-
vertising gift certificates totaling $250
at stores including School Kids Records
and Ulrich's bookstore in exchange for
a signed lease.
Local landlords, however, don't think
the situation is as severe as the Univer-

sity's housing office claims.
According to the results of an infor-
mal survey, many landlords claim they
have few vacant units remaining. In
addition, most claimed they have been
able to hold rent increases to a
minimum.
Few landlords said they were of-
fering incentives in order to rent units
although some said their rental policies
were flexible.
Jan Hilscher, manager of Old Town
Realty, said the agency charges a 25
percent premium for an eight-month
lease but that the figure is negotiable.
"We try and go by the individual," she
said.

TAs to vote on contract

(Continued from Page 1)
The proposed contract is the result of
months of negotiations between
University and GEO officials.
FOR YEARS, the University had
refused to acknowledge GEO's right to
represent graduate teaching assistants
at the bargaining table, claiming that
graduate assistants were primarily
students and not unionized employees.
Last November, however, the
Michigan Employment Relations

Commission ruled that graduate
assistants were considered employees
and that the University had to bargain
with GEO. Negotiations opened the
following April and ended in July whe
bargainers agreed upon the proposed
contract.
Rejection of the proposed contract -
which GEO officials point out is very
unlikely -would send GE O and the
University back to the bargaining
table.
