End-of-semester transportation
to affect traffic at University Park

As in past years, the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) will be sponsoring buses to help transport students home from University Park for the holidays and semester breaks. These buses — which load along Pollock Road just west of the HUB-Robeson Center and near Parking Lot 80 — will have a minimal impact on traffic flow during departure times, particularly along Pollock Road at the heart of the campus.

For the Thanksgiving break beginning Wednesday, Nov. 27, buses will arrive in front of the HUB-Robeson center at 3:15 p.m., with a scheduled departure of 3:45 p.m. Since Pollock Road is closed the through-traffic at that time of day, no impact on vehicular traffic is expected.

On Friday, Dec. 20, and again on Friday, March 7, at the start of spring break, buses are scheduled to arrive in front of the HUB-Robeson Center at 4:40 p.m., with a departure time of 5:15 p.m. To accommodate the loading of these buses, the gates on Pollock Road, which typically open to through-traffic at 4:30 p.m., will remain closed until the buses depart.

Faculty, staff and others who use Pollock Road to access central parking lots and buildings should take these extended road closures into account when traveling on or around campus on these days.
