Because of construction on Interstate 88, the exit to Annie Glidden Road is closed. As a result, graduates and families should use the Peace Road exit. Drivers may also want to consider Route 38 and Route 64 to the DeKalb/Sycamore area.

Also, please note that Interstate 88 is down to one lane between Route 47 and Rochelle. So, allow ample time to get to the Convocation Center. Graduates must report one hour prior (at 1:00 p.m.) to the ceremony.
