Mayor’s festival to cause campus congestion
As the University prepares for the Mayor’s Back 2 School Fest that will be held Saturday at the Athletics/Alumni Center, Hofheinz Pavilion and parking lot 20A, students and community members should prepare for heavy traffic on and around the campus, according to a University of Houston Traffic Alert.
Significant traffic delays are expected on Cullen Boulevard, Elgin Street, Scott Street and Texas Spur 5.
The traffic alert said that the UH community should expect delays throughout Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Parking lots 16B and 18A will be near capacity and Cullen between Holman Street and Elgin Street will have a heavy amount of vehicles and pedestrians.
Students and those visiting the campus way wish to adjust their travel times to compensate for potential delays and consider alternative parking areas. The use of the parking lots on Wheeler Street and Calhoun Road may minimize delays.
