Forecasted inclement weather, the potential for coastal flooding and planned road closures in downtown Norfolk will impact travel to Scope for graduating students, returning alumni, faculty and staff, and other guests. Participants and guests should be prepared to allow extra travel time to Scope for EVMS Commencement.

Road closures that will impact travel to and within downtown Norfolk on Saturday, May 14 from 7 - 10 a.m. include:

  • Waterside Drive
  • Boush Street
  • Intersection of Boush & Brambleton between 8 - 8:30 a.m.
  • Redgate & Westover Avenue
  • W. Olney and Colley Avenue in front of EVMS campus
  • Colley Avenue in Ghent will be open but not able to be crossed from side streets

If traveling by interstate, it is recommended to exit via St. Paul’s Blvd. instead of Waterside Drive.

Please travel safely and allow ample time to navigate the weather and roads. As a reminder, additional day-of instructions can be found on the EVMS Commencement website.
