Hearings may cause traffic tie-ups

Johns Hopkins University Provost Robert C. Lieberman and Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Daniel G. Ennis asked the university community today to be prepared for possible traffic issues or other disruptions to daily operations that may arise Wednesday, Sept. 2 and Thursday, Sept. 10. On those days, pre-trial hearings are scheduled in Baltimore in the case of police officers charged in the death last spring of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray. The trial is not scheduled to begin until October, at the earliest.

Lieberman and Ennis said the university is in communication with police, transit officials, and other officials and will relay information to the university community through the Johns Hopkins Emergency Alerts text message system and, where appropriate, follow-up email messages. Emergency-related information is also available on the Alerts page of the university website and on the university emergency phone line at 410-516-7781.
