Traffic detours planned during Wake Forest commencement


May 16, 2008

Wake Forest University will be closed to through traffic for its commencement ceremony Monday, May 19, from 5:30 a.m. until the ceremony ends around noon.  E.J. Dionne, a Washington Post columnist, will deliver the commencement address to approximately 1,500 graduate and undergraduate students.

Commencement parking passes and commencement tickets are required to enter campus and attend the event.  Passes and tickets are reserved for graduates and their guests.  Those without a commencement parking pass will not be allowed to enter campus.

Traffic at the university’s three entrances — Reynolda Road, Polo Road and University Parkway — is likely to be heavy.  Anyone not attending the commencement ceremony should plan to take alternate routes around campus.

Parking on campus is limited on commencement morning.  Anyone attending the ceremony without a commencement parking pass should use the university’s shuttle service.  The shuttle service will provide continuous transportation to and from parking lots at BB&T Field from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

University employees should park in the BB&T Field parking lots and use the shuttle service.  A commencement ticket or university identification will be required to ride the shuttles.
