MISSOULA – The YMCA River Bank Run set for Saturday is prompting traffic changes on the University of Montana campus.

Campus Drive will become one-way for traffic from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m., running north to south.

Both lanes of Campus Drive will be closed to all traffic from 10:40 a.m. until 11 a.m. from the Adams Center to the parking garage.

Officers will be at locations along Campus Drive to help with traffic and pedestrian safety.

University of Montana Chief of Police Marty Ludemann notes there is also a large lacrosse tournament in the stadium and a tennis tournament at the same time, so there will be a lot of traffic to manage on Campus Drive.

Swimmers and tennis participants are encouraged to use Lot N for drop off.
