Coming Events that May Create Traffic
To the University Community:
During the next three to four months numerous activities are planned on and around the Penn campus. As a result of these events you should expect a significant increase in vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the University City area. Please share this notification with your friends and colleagues.
The Penn Police Department, in conjunction with other University divisions, the Philadelphia Police Department, and numerous City of Philadelphia agencies, has devoted many hours in planning for these special events. It is our intent to work with all of the above entities to create a safe and secure environment for the Penn and West Philadelphia communities during the events listed below:
Note: On Saturday, April 25, you can expect a significant increase in vehicular and pedestrian traffic from 3 p.m. on, due to the three overlapping events of Dino Fest, Penn Relays, and the BIG-C dance. Congestion will have a substantial impact at the close of the Penn Relays and Dino Fest, which are scheduled to conclude respectively at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.
The Division of Public Safety will be on hand at all of the events to create a safe and secure environment for members of and visitors to our community.
