Boulder officials warn of lengthy delays for CU graduation ceremonies

BOULDER, Colo. — Officials are warning drivers to expect a lot of traffic delays Friday as the University of Colorado holds its commencement ceremonies for hundreds of graduates.

The commencement will be held at Folsom Field, but many department ceremonies are taking place at other venues.

The Coors Event Center, Macky Auditorium, Old Main Chapel and the Sewall lawn will be used as locations for graduation events.

The university said parking lots will be crowded and roadways will be heavily impacted. They suggest walking, biking or riding the bus instead.
