Residents who live near the University of Michigan's North Campus plan to attend a board of regents meeting this week to protest the construction of a new transit center.  Their concern it will create too much noise and cause pollution. 


The project at Hubbard and Green Roads has been put on hold by the university after public backlash.  But that's not stopping Kate Delaney from voicing her concerns at the meeting this Thursday.  Delaney, who works in child development research says the transit center could cause serious sleep disruption for children that can lead to other health concerns. 

The mother of three lives 500 feet away from the proposed site and plans to attend the meeting with other members from the Northeast Ann Arbor Community Coalition.
