Here They Come: Lane Restrictions Announced as Penn State Students Return

by on August 19, 2013 12:21 PM

It's time once again for a flood of Penn Students to rush back into State College. Classes resume Aug. 26.

Anticipating some big crowds, the State College Police Department has declared Friday, Aug. 23 and Saturday, Aug. 24 Penn State Student Return Days.

Thousands of students and their parents will be returning to town, in cars, vans and trucks -- bursting with beds, couches, clothes and whatever other gear college students will be cramming into their dorms and apartment buildings.

And that means there will be thousands of people in cars, vans and trucks all looking for places to park. Police hope to keep the log jam to a minimum. In an effort to minimize unloading problems, State College police will be closing one travel lane in the 600 block of East College Avenue between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

You should expect at least some minor traffic delays on East College Avenue between South Garner Street and University drive due to students moving in and the high volume of traffic.
