Knight Campus safety improvements may result in traffic delays on first few days of classes

Aug. 26, 2015

The Community College of Rhode Island wants to alert those traveling near its Knight Campus in Warwick to anticipate delays on East Avenue, Route 113, next week as drivers on campus adjust to some new safety improvements.

This summer, a raised crosswalk to increase pedestrian safety was installed on the portion of road that faculty and staff members use to access the main campus entrance from their parking lot. The project included the installation of solar-powered warning lights to alert drivers to crosswalk use.

Cars traveling to the student parking lot must slow significantly to traverse this raised crosswalk, which might cause some backups down to the traffic signal at Route 113 starting Aug. 31. Traffic coming to campus, particularly in the left-turn lane on Route 113 west, is frequently heavy at times during the first few days of classes.

The entrance roads on campus also have been restriped, with directional arrows added, and those arriving to campus via RIPTA bus will find that the bus stop has been relocated from the Enrollment Services entrance at the front of the building to an area adjacent to a new pavilion near to the student parking lot.
