Purse stolen
during Markley
home invasion
An unidentified suspect stole a
purse from an unlocked empty room
in Mary Markley Residence Hall
around 12:00 p.m. Saturday. Some
of the items were later discovered in
a nearby stairwell.
Although a crime alert normally
warrants a suspect description, DPS
spokeswoman Diane Brown said
because of the large number of
home invasions that occurred last
semester, DPS justified an alert in
this situation. This is the 10th home
invasion DPS issued a crime alert
for since January 2002.

Construction needed
but brings problems
to pedestrians, drivers

By Ashley Fdoman
For the Daily
Due to the high amounts of construc-
tion coming to Ann Arbor in the next
few months, pedestrians may have to
think of some creative paths to get to
their destinations.
State Street area construction began
in March and will continue throughout
the summer in phases to add improve-
ments, including new streetlights, side-
walks, trees and bike racks. Maynard,
East Liberty and East William streets,
as well as the south side of North Uni-
versity Avenue and the west side of
State, are anticipated to be finished by
mid-July - just in time for the Ann
Arbor Street Art Fair, which begins
July 17.
"There is just construction every-
where," Washtenaw Community College
freshman Rebecca Owin said, who
added that construction makes driving
through Ann Arbor longer and brings
unexpected delays.
Susan Pollay, director of the Down-
town Development Authority, said con-
struction is being done one block at a
time. "Each block should take three to
four weeks to be completed," she said.
No businesses will be blocked at any

taking place during the summer to dis-
rupt as few students as possible.
"Construction is a temporary incon-
venience that brings convenience later
on," she said.
But Education junior Amber Guess
said the appearance of the city may have
an effect on potential University stu-
dents visiting this summer.
"The construction causes the campus
and city appearances to be temporarily
less aesthetically pleasing, especially to
visiting new students," Guess said.
Despite inconveniences during con-
struction, the renovations to the area will
make the downtown area safer and
brighter, Pollay said. "One of the best
parts of this project is the lighting
scheme, which is designed to make it
feel comfortable and safe," she said.
There will be additional lighting 24
hours a day in the State Street area after
the project is complete.
The first construction project to begin
was at Maynard Street between East
William and East Liberty.
Matthew Kelly, a vendor at Hot Dogs
on the Run located at the corner of May-
nard and East Liberty, said business at
the stand has been cut in half. "The
construction is noisy, it's dirty," he said.
