Thursday is move-in day for Salisbury University students

Salisbury University Police have issued a traffic advisory on Camden Avenue between College Avenue and Pine Bluff Road from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, as approximately 1,200 new students and their parents come to campus for Move-In Day.

Non-University northbound traffic on Camden Avenue from the Fruitland/Eden areas that morning will be detoured onto Route 13 at the Dogwood Drive and Camden Avenue intersection. To save time, northbound traffic may want to detour onto Route 13 one intersection sooner, at Pine Bluff Road, or use Riverside Drive until the detour ends at 2 p.m. Traffic should be flowing normally by early afternoon.

At the Camden and College avenues intersection, all southbound traffic will be detoured to Route 13. Those wishing 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 into 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 (Teacher Education and Technology Center 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 seek parking in the Dresser parking lots.

This advisory is issued in partnership with Wicomico County Public Works, the Maryland State Highway Administration, the City of Salisbury, Salisbury Police and the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office.
