The City of Ann Arbor put out a call for submissions for designs for new manhole covers. 10 designs were chosen to move on to a public vote leaving three winners. One of the designs, "Kayak", features a kayaker on the Huron River. The inspiration for this design came from the various waterways that bisect the city and the city's urge to preserve those connections by turning them into parks, trails, and other public spaces. This design will be produced and installed in Ann Arbor in late 2020.
