Local drivers, bicyclists, and
pedestrians now must contend with
several city road blocks and detours
near the University's complex due to
road repairs being conducted in con-
junction with the Replacement
City engineers overseeing the
project said the construction will
cuase some inconveniences to
drivers, but there are alternate routes
for people to get from the north to the
south side of the city.
ACCORDING TO a report issued by
the University Replacement Hospital
Project, there are four areas in the
city where normal traffic patterns
will be interrupted:
Huron St., between Fletcher and
Washtenaw Pl., will be closed to traf-
fic. Eastbound traffic on Huron St.
will be routed south on Fletcher, then
to North University to continue onto
Washtenaw Ave. or Geddes Ave;
" Glen St., between Catherine and
Huron St., wil be closed to traffic, but
the intersections between Ann and
Clen St. and Catherine and Glen St.
will remain open;
* Catherine, presently a westbound,
one-way street, will temporarily han-
dle -two-way traffic between Glen St.
and North Ingalls;
" Parking will be prohibited on Flet-
cher between North University and
Huron St., on the north side of
Catherine between State St. and North
Ingalls, on the west side of North
Ingalls between Huron St. and
Catherine, and on Catherine between
Glen and North Ingalls.
All of the construction, except that
on Huron St., will be completed by
Sept. 15, according to city engineers.
The repairs on Huron St. are
scheduled for completion before this
summer's city art fair, which begins
on July 15 of this year.
After more than a decade of leading
the University's medical activities,
Medical School Dean and Medical Cen-
ter Director John Gronvall will resign
this summer to "explore other
challenges," University President
Harold Shapiro announced recently.
"As dean, Dr. Gronvall has a record
of significant accomplishments,"
Shapiro said in a statement concerning
the resignation. Shapiro cited Gron-
vall's extensive involvement in the
planning and the efforts to gain gover-
nmental approval for the University's
$285 million Replacement Hospital
The statement also contained praise
for Gronvall's development of an in-
novative "medical service plan,"
which divides revenues from patient
care between faculty physicians and
the University. The plan "established
an effective professional fee
management system that has put the
Medical School and its departments on
a sound financial footing," Shapiro
The statement did not reveal what
Gronvall plans to do upon resigning.
Gronvall came to Ann Arbor in 1968
following several faculty appointments
at other universities, including a term
as associate dean of the University of
Mississippi Medical School.
He succeeded Dr. William Hubbard
as dean of the University's Medical
School in 1971. Gronvall has a lengthy
record of prominent membership in
several national medical and health
He is a member of the Institute of
Medicine of the National Academy of,
Sciences and currently serves as
chairman of the Liaison Committee on
Medical Education, the body that ac-
credits medical schools in the United
States and Canada.
