A Jefferson Lab Physics Fest, a two-hour field trip for students, is scheduled for Thursday, April 5, from 10 a.m. to about noon in the CEBAF Center auditorium.
When students depart – about a 30 minute period between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. – their buses converge on the CEBAF Center Circle. At times, the number of buses and limited space in the Circle causes westbound traffic on Kelvin Drive (formerly the South Connector Road) to temporarily stop.
Westbound vehicles must stop and wait for the bus traffic to move completely into the Circle before proceeding. All Jefferson Lab roads are NO PASSING ZONES. Westbound vehicles must not enter the eastbound traffic lanes to get around the buses.
To avoid this potential traffic delay and the congestion, when departing the lab at lunch time on Physics Fest days, instead, take Hadron Drive to Rattley Road or to Pauli Drive (formerly the North Connector Road) to leave the lab.
Dates for upcoming Physics Fests are:
Tuesday, April 17
Wednesday, April 18
Tuesday, May 1
Wednesday, May 2
