“John Kerr, owner of Wazoo Records of 33612 State St., said he has been told the two-way traffic would increase business because cars would travel slower and notice businesses more often.

“I’m real curious to see if it has the desired effect,” Kerr said. “It will be a lot easier to give directions and a lot easier for people who are not familiar with Ann Arbor.”

Although causing some minor confusion with delivery trucks and pedestrians, the first day since the streets in the State Street Area were made two-way went relatively smoothly. See AANews: “Street switch goes without a glitch”
