Sunday, September 1 is move-in day at Plymouth State College, and Campus Police are preparing for the return of approximately 3,500 students over the Labor Day weekend. PSC Campus Police are once again implementing a traffic plan that will better direct College related traffic, and help alleviate congestion in the downtown area.
“We are looking forward to the return of our students,” says Campus Police Chief John E. Clark, “but due to ongoing construction projects on campus and in the community, and concern over roadway access for emergency vehicles, we, along with the Plymouth Police Department, will coordinate the flow of traffic on move-in day.”
On Sunday, September 1, electronic signage will be positioned on Interstate 93 just south of Exit 25 directing all PSC traffic to Exit 26.
- Students moving into White Mountain Student Apartments will be directed south on Main St., then west on to Merrill St.
- Students who will reside in Grafton, Smith, Hall, Mary Lyons or Blair Halls will travel south on Main St. after exiting, and then west on High St.
- Students moving into Pemi and Belknap Halls will follow Rt. 25 west to Highland St., and follow Highland St. east to Langdon St.
Campus police will be stationed throughout the community to assist drivers.
Additionally, members of PSC’s athletic teams and Greek life will be on hand to help students unload vehicles and move in to on-campus housing. Their assistance will further aid police in maintaining the flow of traffic through the community.
“Our goal is to facilitate a smooth and efficient move-in experience for all students, keep local traffic flowing and ensure the roadways are accessible to emergency vehicles,” says Clark.
