In support of ‘Howdy Week’ activities and move-in at Texas A&M University, Transportation Services is providing additional traffic control in highly congested areas during peak times Sunday, Aug. 19 through Wednesday Aug. 22.
Drivers in the campus community should expect delays during this peak traffic period and should plan accordingly.
Temporary drop-off zones are available in designated locations on campus in an effort to ease the congestion and facilitate move-in for arriving students. These areas will be marked with signs.
Bicyclists are encouraged to use extreme caution as certain bike lanes will be obstructed during move-in week.
“Our top priority for Howdy Week, especially during move-in, is safety and we ask the community to plan ahead and use caution while driving on and around campus,”
Transportation Services Associate Vice President Peter Lange said. “Additionally, we want bicyclists to use extreme caution and to travel with the flow of traffic
when riding through designated move-in areas as bike lanes could be obstructed in this area during this time.”
“We hope the transportation plan we have in place will ensure the safe arrival and transition to Aggieland for our newest members of the Aggie family during this time,” Lange said.
