UMd. tries no cars on Campus Drive
The University of Maryland has decided to restrict access to Campus Drive for eight weeks beginning next month.
The school will temporarily close Campus Drive to all but pedestrians, bicyclists, campus shuttles, Metro buses, emergency vehicles, construction vehicles, delivery trucks and university service vehicles from June 19 and July 16.
Campus Drive will then close to Metro buses and campus shuttles between July 17 and Aug. 13. During that time, access will be limited to an internal Campus Connector and paratransit, emergency, construction, delivery and maintenance vehicles.
No private cars or trucks will be allowed on the roadway during the eight weeks. The only exception is July 4.
The decision to temporarily shut down Campus Drive, between the M Circle to the intersection of Cole Field House and Union Drive, is part of a pilot plan to create a pedestrian-friendly campus center.
