Transportation Advisory: Change in Direction of Whiting Street

By Joanne Yestramski

Please be aware that on Tuesday, April 22, the direction of Whiting Street will be reversed. Whiting, which currently runs one way from Salem Street to Fletcher Street, will be changed to one way from Fletcher Street to Salem Street. The change, which was done in coordination with the city of Lowell and is on a trial basis, is intended to optimize traffic flow in the area and to simplify entry into UMass Lowell’s Fletcher Street parking lot. The University and city officials will monitor the impact of the change during the trial period.
