U-Md. may close Campus Drive
University of Maryland students are scheduled to gather at 4 p.m. Tuesday to give input on a university plan that would close Campus Drive this summer to most buses and all private vehicles as a pilot project to see whether the road should be closed to them in the long term.
The road through the College Park campus would remain open only to pedestrians, bicyclists and a few shuttle bus routes. The forum, sponsored by the student government, is being held in the student union.
Some supporters of a Purple Line light rail line through the campus say they worry a because the Maryland Transit Administration has said the line can only run along Campus Drive. University officials have opposed a Purple Line along Campus Drive.
