Around 3,000 students will move into Northern Illinois University today. 

NIU officials say this will result in nearly 5,000 vehicles on local roads. 

Traffic from I-88’s Annie Glidden Road exit will be routed down Fairview Drive and Nelson Road before going down Lincoln Highway. 

Routes on West Campus will be one-way, and increased traffic is expected along Sycamore’s retail corridor, especially around Target and Wal-Mart.
