Texas A&M Transportation Services Prepare For Howdy Week, Move-In
In support of Howdy Week and Move-In activities, Texas A&M University Transportation Services is providing additional traffic management in highly congested areas during peak times beginning Saturday, Aug. 8 through Aug. 18.
To allow a more phased approach to Move-In, with respect to greater physical distancing in the interest of the health and safety for residents, families and staff, check-in this year will be by appointment only for most residents. As a result, drivers in the campus community will experience increased traffic throughout the week and are asked to plan accordingly when traveling to and around campus.
“Our top priority during this time, is safety,” said Peter Lange, associate vice president for Transportation Services. “We ask the community to use caution while driving on and around campus and we ask our bicyclists to use extreme caution when riding bikes through designated move-in areas.”
Short-term unloading 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 managed by officers and marked with signs.
Bicyclists are encouraged to use extreme caution, as certain bike lanes will be obstructed during Move-In week.
Areas to proceed with caution:
- In the south areas of campus, students and parents may access temporary unloading zones on Bizzell, Lewis and Coke Streets. Transportation Services officers will manage operations in these areas.
- In the north area of campus, Transportation Services officers will manage operations on Hogg Street with unloading allowed curbside. Curbside parking or unloading is prohibited on Jones and Central Houston Streets. Hart Hall residents will have limited access to four spaces in Lot 19 designated and marked as temporary unloading zones and Lot 22 on weekends.
