BUCKHANNON — Saturday, August 21, is the new student move-in day at West Virginia Wesleyan (WVWC) College. The city welcomes the new students and is working with the college to reduce traffic congestion on the streets that surround campus.
To that end, traffic patterns will be temporarily adjusted as follows:
- Meade Street will be one-way only from College Avenue to Camden Avenue
- WVWC staff greeters will be at the corners of Camden Avenue & Meade Street, Meade Street & College Avenue, and East Main Street and College Avenue to control traffic and provide directions to students and parents. Barriers will be in place from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at these intersections.
- Guides will be available at each of these intersections to advise drivers for direction, safety.
John Bohman, Director of Greek Life & Supervisor, Campus Safety & Security, will be leading 80 fraternity and sorority members as they welcome more than 340 new students (and their families) to campus and assist with traffic control with the help of the Buckhannon Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS), the Buckhannon Police Department, and Buckhannon Streets and Parks Department.
For questions, please contact Mr. Bohman at (304) 473-8073 or Jerry Arnold, City of Buckhannon Public Works Director, at (304) 472-1651.
