PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence College will permanently close to traffic the portion of a street that runs through its campus.

The school says it will close Huxley Avenue between Eaton Street and Ventura Street starting on Wednesday.

The college purchased that portion of the street from the city of Providence in 2012 with the goal of unifying its campus. Crossing Huxley Avenue has been a safety issue over the years. Several people have been struck by cars while crossing from one side of campus to the other.

Providence College says entries to campus will be at Admiral Street, lower Eaton Street and the main gate at Cunningham Square.
