Officials Advise High School Students and Parents to Allow Extra Travel Time

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.– Summer break is ending, and students return to school next week. The traditional calendar schedule for Fayetteville Public Schools begins on Tuesday, August 13. University of Arkansas students will start moving into dorms on Wednesday, August 14 and continue through August 19.

Officials from the City, University, and Fayetteville Public Schools recommend that high school students and parents plan a route and allow for extra travel time during the first week of school. A section of Stadium Drive, between the Clinton Drive and Leroy Pond Drive roundabouts, will be closed for student move-in. Drivers will be able to use those roundabouts for turning.

In addition to UA Move-In traffic, there are several road construction projects on or adjacent to the University campus which have restricted traffic flow. New traffic signals have been or have been scheduled to be installed on Razorback Road at Leroy Pond Drive and W. Maple Avenue
