In anticipation of seven Chesapeake Public High School commencement ceremonies at the Ted Constant Convocation Center this week, traffic will be a concern for those traveling to and from downtown Norfolk, Portsmouth (mid-town tunnel) and the Naval Base from the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The commencement schedule is as follows:

  • Wednesday, June 12: Hickory High School - 7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 13: Western Branch High School - 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, June 13: Great Bridge High School - 7:30 p.m.

Travelers can expect heavy traffic on Hampton Boulevard from downtown Norfolk to the Naval Base. We highly advise all patrons to take additional caution during their commute and alert the general public to use alternative routes that include the use of Terminal Boulevard to Hampton Boulevard via I-64 or side streets adjacent to Hampton Boulevard such as Colley Avenue when traveling from downtown Norfolk.

When attending one or more commencement ceremony at the Ted Constant Convocation Center, there will be parking spaces available on the campus of Old Dominion University in the South CCC garage which is accessible via 41st street and North CCC garage which is accessible via 45th street off of Hampton Boulevard. Overflow parking will be ushered to garages A and B, located on 43rd street and Elkhorn Avenue on campus.

A map of the two parking locations and more information can be found at http://www.constantcenter.com/plan_your_visit/directions_parking
