City streets to be reconfigured for a day

PLATTSBURGH — As students move into SUNY Plattsburgh’s residence halls on Saturday, Aug. 24, traffic along the part of Rugar Street that runs through campus will flow in a westerly direction only.

The one-way traffic pattern, beginning at 7 a.m. and ending at 7 p.m., is designed to ensure the safety of students and their families.

Motorists traveling along Rugar Street between Memorial Hall and the Sanborn Extension will be able to only go west toward Plattsburgh High School. 

Those traveling in an easterly direction — toward Lake Champlain — will find the street closed at the intersection with the Sanborn Extension. They will be diverted along Sanborn to Park Avenue to Draper Avenue and then onto Broad Street.

The Sanborn Extension will also temporarily become a one-way street. Individuals will only be permitted to drive from Rugar Street toward Park Avenue.
