New Jersey Fast Traffic’s Jill Myra says delays can be expected on Pennington Road (Route 31) around the campus and also exiting from Interstate 95 at exit 4 for Route 31 for the TCNJ ceremony. On Friday, traffic is likely to be backed up on I-95 to exit 7 for Route 206. Lawrenceville Road will also have slow traffic heading to campus.



Security will be tight at both ceremonies. Rider is not allowing backpacks, large purses, coolers, duffel bags and any other large bags into the Campus Green for any commencement ceremonies.
