CHICO, Calif.—As the college year comes to a close this week thousands of students at Chico State are heading home.

Students living on campus have 48 hours to pack up and go.

The dorm move out on Chico State campus is underway.

University Police will have Legion Avenue blocked off to move out and pick up only.

This will mean traffic control along Warner Street.

Sean Murphy Media Relations at Chico State said, “There will be a huge influx of people in the street and the big exodus happened. It can be tricky and it's kind of a dance - we've been doing it for about 30 years and there's not perfect system but we try our best."

The one exception is that graduating students can stay until Sunday.

Traffic control will be assisting all day Friday.

Consider an alternate route like the Esplanade or Highway 32 if you’re travelling north or south around the campus area.

The move out is just the beginning of a huge swell of congestion in store for the rest of the week.

Rain showers and a good chance for thunderstorms are on the way for your Friday night and Saturday forecast. We'll also be much cooler and have gusty South winds this weekend. Some showers are possible early next week, but dry and warmer weather returns for the middle of next week.
