STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State University Police are making traffic control changes for the rest of the football season.
Police Chief Vance Rice said Hail State Boulevard is the fastest route to get anywhere compared to sitting in heavy traffic on Highway 12.
Drivers going westbound on Blackjack Road will have to turn south on Hail State Boulevard.
Drivers going eastbound from Highway 12 onto Blackjack Road will not be allowed past Locksley Way.
Officers will close Old Mayhew Road at Bardwell Road and will not allow incoming traffic onto Highway 182.
Rice said they’re blocking off that section of road because drivers ignored the barricades placed at Lee Boulevard in the past.
He urges drivers to turn off their GPSs and follow the officers’ directions.
He wants to remind drivers that after the game, no traffic will be allowed on campus for at least two hours, even if you live on campus.
