UConn issues traffic advisory for a busy Saturday

UConn is trying to provide an advance warning to people coming up to campus tomorrow that traffic could be a little on the hectic side and not just because the women's basketball game is sold out.

The Boston Pops are playing at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Also, the Mansfield Downtown Partnership will be welcoming guests to Storrs Center from 1-5 p.m. as part of its annual Winter Welcome.

Here is part of the advisory sent out by UConn

The basketball game is expected to end around 7:30 p.m. or slightly earlier, so many Gampel guests will be leaving campus as the majority of Jorgensen patrons arrive. In addition to North Garage, some limited surface lot parking will be available across the street at Lot 9 for Jorgensen patrons, and South Garage spaces will be opening as basketball fans leave.

Drivers are also asked to be especially vigilant for pedestrians, particularly as evening falls, and to remember to give them the right of way in crosswalks.

“Saturday is shaping up to be a busy and exciting day here, and we expect many thousands of regular and new visitors on campus,” UConn Spokesperson Stephanie Reitz said. “We encourage them to expect more traffic than usual and plan accordingly – and, of course, to have fun and enjoy this great day on our beautiful campus.”
