Traffic Advisory for Friday, August 26

We look forward to welcoming you to campus this weekend!  For those of you scheduled to arrive on Friday, please review the information bellow regarding the Beaver Brook Bridge.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has begun work on replacing the Beaver Brook Bridge, located on the North Campus stretch of the VFW Highway (near the Wicked Blue Turf, between the Aiken Street and University Avenue intersections).

Traffic will be restricted to a single lane in each direction for the duration of this project, which is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2018.

Students, faculty and staff who drive on this section of the VFW Highway may want to seek an alternate route during busy travel times such as residence hall move-in on Friday, August 26.  Additionally, commuters may want to plan for extra time getting to campus if they pass through this area.

Additional information can be found in this UMass Lowell Today announcement.
