regional access

Regional access to the campus is via Route 9 and Route 116. These two routes connect to Interstates 90 and 91 linking UMass regionally to Boston, Worcester, Springfield, Hartford, and Albany.

Access to UMass Amherst from the east from I-90 is circuitous and could benefit from additional signs through Palmer and Belchertown. I-91 is a more direct access route, however Route 9 is a constrained corridor through Hadley –a heavily used commuter and retail corridor.
