Event Traffic
Monday, September 30, expect heavy traffic on and off campus for the concert at the Patriot Center. The concert begins at 8:00 pm with doors opening at 7:00pm. Traffic and parking will be busiest between 6:00 – 8:00pm.

As with any weeknight Patriot Center event, it is highly recommended to utilize alternative transportation. If you must drive, avoid Braddock Road approaching campus and use alternate routes and entrances to campus, including University Drive and Roberts Road.


With respect to parking options, it is best for those not attending to the concert to park on the north end of campus in Rappahannock River Parking Deck and Lot H (which is open to General student permits from 5:00 – 11:00pm). Overnight restrictions in the General parking area of Rappahannock River Parking Deck will be waived Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

After 5pm, the upper levels of the Shenandoah Parking Deck permit area will be opened to General permit and event parking overflow – everyone must be out by 12:00am (midnight).

Parking, Police, and Patriot Center staff will be directing traffic on roadways and in parking areas. Please follow their directions to save time and for your safety.

With the increase in traffic, also expect delays on Mason Shuttles routes. Allow plenty of extra time coming to campus whether you drive or take a bus. Consider carpooling – find or share a ride at
