Police prepare for busy traffic afternoon at NDSUFARGO, N.D. — Fargo police are preparing for a busy afternoon of traffic on the campus of North Dakota State University.
The school is holding its winter graduation ceremonies at the Bison Sports Arena at 4 p.m., three hours before the NDSU football team is scheduled to begin its playoff game at the Fargodome.
Police says the peak time for congestion will be between 5:30 and 6 p.m. and are asking motorists to find alternate routes to and from the two facilities.
School officials say more than 500 students have signed up for the commencement ceremony.
More than 19,000 fans are expected to attend Friday night's Football Championship Subdivision playoff game between NDSU and visiting Georgia Southern.
