High school graduation

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – If you plan to be in the area near the Stuart C. Siegel Center, along the 1200 West Broad Street, between June 5 and June 16 you can expect delays from many high school graduations.

More than 20 high schools from Chesterfield, Hanover, Henrico and New Kent will be using the center with attendance expected to be range from 2,500 to more than 6,000 people.

“Before and after these graduation ceremonies, we anticipate a great deal of traffic in the vicinity of the Siegel Center,” said VCU Police Capt. Mike O’Berry in a press release. “Use alternate routes if possible. If you are attending a graduation ceremony, leave early to allow extra time for traffic and parking.
