Work on the new viaduct over the
Michigan Central Railroad tracks and
Depot street, was begun yesterday
morning, and its completion is sched-
uled for about October 15, according
to an announcement by City Engineer
George H. Sandenburgh..
Although the estimated cost of the
viaduct was originally placed at $300,-
000, it is now thought that the total
expenditure will not exceed $250,000.
The contract for the construction of
the bridge was let to the firm of Fer-
guson and Edmondson, of Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania. Of this amount the,
Michigan Central Railroad will pay
$67,000 and the City of Ann Arbor
and the State of Michigan will pay
$91,500 each.
Plans and specifications for the
structure call for a roadway 40 feet
wide and 400 feet in length and two.
six-foot sidewalks. The present bridge
has been closed to traffic until Oct.
15, although arrangements have been
made to permit the use of the bridge'
for traffic on the Fourth of July.,
