Schedule extra time if you are driving around Camden Thursday.

Rutgers-Camden graduation ceremonies will be held, and that means traffic delays.

“Anyone traveling around Camden City should be prepared for extra traffic and possible delays on roads leading to the Rutgers-Camden campus and the Camden Waterfront,” Ian Leonard, a Camden County freeholder, said in a statement.

Other streets that could be backed up: Admiral Wilson Boulevard, I-676 and Cooper Street in Camden.

There are five graduation ceremonies scheduled, according to a press release. Four of them will be at the Susquehanna Bank Center. It will be at this location that musician Jon Bon Jovi and equal justice activist Bryan Stevenson will be given honorary degrees.

The first graduation ceremony is scheduled to start at 9 a.m., with the last ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences scheduled for 6 p.m.

One mid-afternoon ceremony will be held at the Athletic and Fitness Center on the Rutgers-Camden campus.
