Expect Ricardo Aronja to tie up traffic around George Mason University Thursday evening.
The Patriot Center will host Aronja as part of his Metamorfosis tour starting at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Motorists should anticipate a car crawl along the edges of George Mason University and long lines at the Braddock Road-Route 123 and Braddock-Patriot Circle, Braddock-Sideburn and Route 123-University Drive intersections.
Avoid these areas for at least an hour before and after the concert start time. Traffic will also be heavy after the concert ends from 10:30-11:30 p.m. Those who live in the neighborhoods near GMU (hi Kelley Drive residents!) should try to get home early and, well, stay there.
Plan to park on campus? General permit lots A, C, K and L will likely be crowded as well as the first two levels of the Rappahannock River parking deck and Field House General lots M, O and P.
