Corps of Cadets march in

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) – There is a big change coming to Texas A&M University's pre-game activities. The Corps of Cadets is changing the route their taking for march in. The university released information about the changes. Check them out below:

The Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University is changing its traditional pre-game March-In route for this week’s Mississippi State game on Oct. 28. The cadets will instead showcase the March-In through the areas surrounding Reed Arena on West Campus for this game.

The Corps of Cadets March-In will require the closure of several roads on West Campus from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., which will create additional traffic congestion that will greatly impact west campus fans’ ability to arrive on time for the game. Organizers suggest fans plan to arrive early, familiarize themselves with the closure maps and enjoy this great tradition from their tailgates.

“If you park in the affected areas, come before March-In. If you don’t park in the area, avoid west campus streets on Saturday,” officials note.

Corps of Cadets West Campus March-In road closures and limited access:

  • Olsen Blvd. between John Kimbrough Blvd. and Chandler Dr.
  • Reed Arena Circle (no access)
  • Permit check at intersection of Olsen Blvd and Chandler Dr.
    • G permits will be allowed past
    • O permits will turn before intersection
    • All northbound Olsen Blvd traffic apart from G and O Lot permits MUST turn left onto Chandler Dr.

To avoid being impacted, fans can take advantage of the free game-day shuttles located in downtown Bryan or at Momentum Plaza off University Dr. and Copperfield Rd.
