The First Lady visits Jackson today and JJ hopes she has a wonderful visit. Here is a traffic bulletin that was issued by one of the neighborhood associations yesterday:
A crowd of 55,000 is expected to attend First Lady Michelle Obama's Jackson State University's commencement ceremony, this Saturday, April 23 at Veterans Memorial Stadium.All attendees for the commencement must be inside the stadium by 1 PM.
It's anticipated major traffic delays will begin as early as 10 AM on Saturday morning. Organizers believe Mrs. Obama will leave the stadium between 4 and 4:30 PM. At the conclusion of the event, we can expect heavy traffic congestion.
Once she lands in Jackson, her motorcade could possibly travel Lakeland Drive between 1-2 PM. Please anticipate Lakeland to be blocked during this time. We also understand that Woodrow Wilson and streets surrounding the stadium will be blocked as well. We will communicate any other information if it becomes available.
