Willow Run Arsenal of Democracy Landholdings Limited Partnership completed the purchase of the Willow Run property Friday, November 4, 2016 from RACER Properties LLC, which paves the way for construction of the new American Center for Mobility facility.


The Center will be designed for research, education, testing, standards convening, product development, validation and self-certification for connected and automated technologies as well as future mobility. It will b located on more than 335 acres in Ypsilanti Township. The Center plans to open for business in December 2017.


With features like double overpasses, railroad crossings, highway loops, and a tunnel, the site provides a cost-effective way to replicate real-world situations in a single location.


The Governor and Arwood both acknowledged the true partnership approach to bringing this project to fruition, including: the Michigan Strategic Fund, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Charter Township of Ypsilanti, Ypsilanti Community Utility Authority, Washtenaw County (including the Water Resource Commission and the Road Commission), RACER Trust, Ann Arbor SPARK, DTE Energy, Yankee Air Museum, Wayne County Airport Authority, Michigan Department of Transportation and other state, regional and local businesses.
