UMD Homecoming Parade Has A New Route
This week was homecoming week for UMD students and the annual Parade will coincide with UMD's Homecoming football game which will close off some roads.
On Saturday, October 15th, starting at about 9:45 a.m., traffic will not be allowed on University Drive through the campus and on St. Marie Street between Kirby Drive and University Drive.
Parade units will form in Lot "B" off of University Drive, and at 10:00 a.m. will exit onto northbound University Drive traveling through the UMD Campus to St. Marie Street, then turn left and finish at Kirby Drive.
Traffic on Kirby Drive will not be affected during the parade.
Traffic will be allowed onto Junction Avenue from College Street, but only up to the parking lots off Oakland Avenue.
Traffic westbound on St. Marie Street will be allowed up to Midway Avenue, but not past University Drive.
DTA buses will not be interrupted and will be allowed on the parade route. Traffic shod be back to normal by about 11:00 a.m. Drivers are encouraged to use caution when driving the area of this event.
It will be quite the confusion if you're trying to get to campus to watch either the parade or the football game. The Bulldogs will be taking on the Northern State Wolves from South Dakota. Be safe this weekend and go Dogs!
