PURDUE UNIVERSITY, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue University Police said the Cherry Lane extension helped out a lot for the first football game of the season.

Cherry Lane was extended through Northwestern Avenue leading to U.S. 231.

The change was meant to alleviate traffic headaches during football games.

Saturday was the first day the new extension was utilized.

With more than 50,000 fans attending the Purdue Football game, the extension was also used as an aid for pedestrians and golf carts.

Purdue PD Chief, John Cox, said because of Cherry Lane's extension everything ran smoothly.

"The intersection was extremely helpful in getting not only inbound traffic in," said Cox. "But more importantly our outbound traffic pattern and getting cars out onto to 231 so we can get them away from campus."
