Prom prompts traffic change

Attention all Halifax County High School prom-goers. This year’s traffic pattern is going to change for all those dressed up young men and women exiting vehicles in the circle in front of the school for Saturday night’s “Garden of Dreams” big event.

Due to traffic congestion problems experienced during the past several years at the prom, Lt. Dennis Barker of the South Boston Police Department said a change is being made in the traffic pattern for most students attending the prom. 

For those students who want to get out of their vehicles in the circle in front of the high school, this year they must use the entrances off Halifax Road at the middle school to come to the high school and enter the circle.

That means to get to the high school circle, prom-goers must use the road between the middle school and high school.

Anyone wishing to park in the high school student parking lot will be permitted to turn into the high school at the traffic light at Walmart, Barker said. 

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, according to Barker.
