Expect Mumford & Sons to tie up traffic around George Mason University Wednesday and Thrusday evening.
The Patriot Center will host the Grammy award-winning band's Gentlemen of the Road Tour at 8 p.m. both dates. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Mumford & Sons beat out the Black Keys, Fun and Jack White at the 2013 Grammy Awards with their Album of the Year victory. Both Patriot Center events are sold out.
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.
