Traffic advisory issued for SU move-in on Aug. 25th

SALISBURY, Md. – Salisbury University Police have issued a traffic advisory on Thursday, August 25th, for move-in day.

The traffic advisory is in effect from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Camden Avenue, between College Avenue and Pine Bluff Road, as roughly 1,000 new students and parents come to campus for move-in day.

We’re told non-University northbound traffic on Camden Avenue from the Fruitland/Eden areas that morning will be detoured onto Route 13 at the Pine Bluff Road and Camden Avenue intersection. Motorists are advised that they may want to detour onto Route 13 one intersection sooner, at Kay Avenue, or use Riverside Drive until the detour ends at 2 p.m.

At the intersection of College and Camden Avenues, all southbound traffic will be detoured to Route 13. Those trying to enter the Devilbiss and Blackwell parking lots on campus should turn from Route 13 onto Dogwood Drive; traffic will be directed northbound to those lots from the Dogwood Drive and Camden Avenue intersection.

Access to the University’s Camden Parking Lot F (Blackwell lot), Camden Parking Lot E (Devilbiss lot), Route 13 Lot A, College Avenue Parking Lots G and H (Conway Hall lots) and Dogwood Parking Lot D, as well as the Wayne Street Parking garage, will be restricted to move-in traffic and deliveries only. All others should park in the Avery parking lot.

Additionally, those traveling on College Avenue should be aware of a new traffic pattern, as the former turn lanes for Parking Lot H (solar lot) and Camden Avenue have been removed to create a new bike lane from Camden Avenue to Route 13.

SU employees who normally park on campus should park at the former Court Plaza Shopping Center on Route 13. Employee shuttles will run from that location to main campus from 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
