Commuters in Amherst, and parents helping to move in new students should be aware of some traffic changes in town.
Traffic will be rerouted to accommodate the uptick in vehicles for the big move-in weekend.
On Friday, when first year students move in to dorms, vehicles will be banned from traveling southbound on University Drive from Massachusetts Avenue to Amity Street between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The same closure will occur on Saturday.
On Sunday, all traffic on Commonwealth Avenue will be moved to the southbound lanes for two-way travel while the northbound lanes will be used as an unloading zone for students moving into the complex.
