Traffic patterns to change for HCHS prom night, Saturday
SoVaNow.com / April 25, 2013With Halifax County High School holding it prom Saturday, the South Boston Police Department has announced several traffic pattern changes for the evening.
According to Lt. Dennis Barker there have been traffic congestion problems over the past several years during prom night and he hopes the new traffic patterns will alleviate those problems.
For those students attending the prom and wanting to get out of their vehicles in the circle in front of the high school, they must use the entrances off Halifax Road at the Middle School to come to the high school using the road between the Middle School and High School before entering the circle.
Anyone wishing to park in the high school parking lot may turn into the high school at the traffic light at Walmart. The entrance into the circle in front of the high school will be closed off approximately one hour before the prom begins and vehicles will only be allowed to exit onto Old Halifax Road from the high school at that time.
Barker apologized to the public for any inconveniences the changes may cause, but added “the department is taking this action to ensure the safety of the students participating in the prom and those there to observe the students on their special night.”
If anyone has any questions they are asked to contract Lt. Barker at (434)575-4273. 694
