A&M Prepares for Tough Traffic for Welcome Week

By  | 

In support of Welcome Week activities and move-in, Transportation Services is providing additional traffic control in highly congested areas during peak times Aug. 19-26.

Drivers should expect delays during this peak traffic period and plan accordingly. One-hour temporary curbside parking will be allowed in designated campus locations in an effort to ease the congestion and facilitate move-in. These areas will be marked with signs and orange barrels.

Bicyclists are encouraged to use extreme caution as certain bike lanes will be obstructed during move-in week.

On the central and south areas of campus, Lubbock Street from Coke Street to Spence Street will be used as a temporary unloading zone. There will also be designated unloading zones on Mosher Lane, south of the Commons. Lubbock Street will be controlled by Transportation Services officers, and will be one-way east with parking allowed curbside between Nagle and Spence. Vehicles will exit Lubbock by passing in front of the Commons.

The same controlled access process will be used on Mosher Lane in the rear of the Commons, allowing vehicles to enter Mosher Lane from Bizzell Street and exit adjacent to the Southside Parking garage onto Lewis Street near Lot 40.

On the north side of campus, portions of Lot 30 will be used as temporary unloading zones. Asbury, Houston and Jones Streets will be controlled by officers, with one hour parking allowed curbside for unloading.

Transportation Services will also provide free move-in shuttles from Reed Arena Lot 100 to the Northside and Southside areas for parents and other visitors. These shuttles will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 19-26.

Move-in maps may be found at the Transportation Services website. Transportation Services may also be contacted at parking@tamu.edu or by calling 862-PARK.
