Borough Announces Traffic Changes For Fall Move-In

College move-ins are never stress-free experiences, and 40,000 families moving in alongside you certainly doesn’t make the process any easier.

To help reduce traffic, prevent headaches, and keep move-in running as smoothly as possible, the borough will put the following temporary traffic pattern changes into effect throughout the next few weeks:

East Calder Way

Starting Monday, August 12, until Sunday, August 25, East Calder Way will be a one-way street heading westbound from Hetzel Street to South Garner Street. It will also be a one-way street heading eastbound from High to Hetzel Street.

Hetzel Street

On Tuesday, August 13, Hetzel Street will become a one-way street headed northbound from East Beaver Avenue to East Calder Way.

West College Ave.

From Thursday, August 15, to Friday, August 16, the left-hand lane of West College Ave. between South Barnard Street and South Atherton Street will be closed. It will be a parking lane to help students unload their cars.

East College Ave.

Effective from Thursday, August 22, through Saturday, August 24, the right-hand lane of East College Ave. between University Drive and High Street will close and become a parking lane to assist with unloading.

Students and parents can find more information and maps detailing the upcoming traffic changes on the borough’s website.

Good luck with moving in, Penn Staters! We’ll see you back in Happy Valley before you know it.
