Road Alert: Traffic gonna be bad, y’all


The City of Orlando is shaking in their boots a bit at the moment as we head into a bit of a “traffic-pocalypse” this weekend.

Thousands of UCF and Valencia College students will be moving into their new downtown digs in Parramore while several large-scale events are happening just up the street; Atlanta United versus Orlando City on Friday, Gators vs. Hurricanes at Camping World on Saturday while the Backstreet Boys perform at the Amway Center, and then the first day of classes are on Monday too; so we’ll be getting thousands of new downtown commuters.

It’s gonna be tight.
