Traffic detours planned during Wake Forest commencement


May 15, 2009

Wake Forest University will be closed to through traffic for its commencement ceremony Monday, May 18, from 5 a.m. until the ceremony ends around noon.  Vice President Joe Biden will deliver the commencement address to about 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. 

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.
