Fall move-in to cause traffic changes
The majority of University of Wisconsin–Madison students who will be living in university residence halls this fall — approximately 6,900 of them — began moving in on Aug. 24, and many of them are scheduled to move in Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 27 and 28.
Motorists should be aware that the following temporary changes in campus-area traffic patterns will take place between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday to accommodate the unloading of the students’ belongings.
- Observatory Drive between North Charter Street and Babcock Drive will be restricted to primarily move-in traffic and will be one-way westbound;
- Elm Drive will be one-way northbound from Observatory Drive;
- Willow Drive will be open to one-way traffic westbound to Marsh Lane; and
- Lake Street between West Johnson and West Dayton streets will be closed to traffic.
