An Auto Test Track Planned For U of M

A new roadway designed to be a proving ground for automated vehicles will be built on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor. The Board of Regents approved the 6.5 million dollar plan.

It’ll be complete with regular streets, a bridge, gravel roads, culverts, a roundabout and even a highway. Construction is expected to be finished this fall. School officials say this will make for an ideal spot for automakers to put their new cars and trucks to the test.

U of M President Mary Sue Coleman says the unique project is getting plenty of attention among those in higher education around the country.
