U2 Concert Road Closures Announced

An estimated 55,000 U2 fans will fill Scott Stadium for the band’s concert this Thursday and University of Virginia police are announcing plans to deal with the traffic troubles.

All roads right around the stadium, including Alderman, Emmet, Stadium, and parts of Jefferson Park Avenue, will be closed starting at 5:00 p.m. The university is also working with Albemarle County to direct concert traffic off Interstate 64.

The university was criticized for poor planning and coordination during the Rolling Stones concert held at Scott Stadium in 2005.
