Students, rail supporters criticize U of Md.'s plan

Posted on May 12, 2010

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Many University of Maryland students and light rail supporters are criticizing the university's plan to temporarily close a main road on campus to all private vehicles and many buses this summer, saying they worry the restrictions will discourage transit use and complicate plans to build a light rail line along the road, according to a Washington Post report. The university is considering closing Campus Drive to all but pedestrians, bicyclists, campus shuttles, emergency vehicles and university service vehicles from June 19 to Aug. 15 as a test of longer-term plans to create a "traffic-free, pedestrian-friendly zone."
