Exiting Campus after the Ceremony
A professional traffic control company will ensure a smooth exit from all parking lots. Please follow the directions of the uniformed personnel. To help speed everyone’s departure Evergreen Parkway will be closed briefly at the end of the ceremony to prioritize exiting traffic in the following fashion:
Will exit via the Parkway Southbound only, traffic will not be allowed to enter the roundabout to go North on the Parkway.
Will exit only via what are normally the entrance lanes and proceed Northbound on the Parkway. Signs will direct drivers to HWY 101 & Olympia city center via Kaiser Road or Cooper Point Road.
When guests exiting overflow parking or F Lot reach the intersection of Driftwood Road and the Parkway, right turns will not be permitted. Flaggers will alternate traffic to proceed straight ahead onto Kaiser Road or turn Left onto Evergreen Parkway. Signs will direct drivers to HWY 101 & Olympia city center via Kaiser Road or Cooper Point Road.
Overhulse Road will be closed during the Ceremony, except for those exiting parking at the Children’s Center.
