Parking and Traffic Information for Ohio State Game
Sept. 28, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - In anticipation of increased crowds and heavy traffic for the IU vs. Ohio State football game, IU Athletics announced today that stadium parking lots will open at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 3.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. and fans are encouraged to arrive as early as possible. Parking is $15 per vehicle on game day and $50 for RV/Buses. RV/Buses are to enter via Gate 11. For more information on specific lot locations, view the Memorial Stadium parking information page. The gates to the stadium will open at 5:30 p.m.
IU Athletics introduced a new traffic plan at the beginning of the 2009 football season. Fans are also asked to review the new traffic plan and plan their route accordingly prior to the game. The new traffic pattern will take effect a minimum of two hours prior to kickoff. To review recommended routes to take to get to your specific lot location, download the 2009 Football Traffic Info PDF or view traffic pattern maps. Please note: additional auxiliary parking lots will be utilized for the Ohio State game. Law enforcement officials may direct vehicles differently than the stated traffic patterns for easier access to auxiliary lots.
Pre-game Traffic Plan
The 45/46 Bypass will remain two-way with two eastbound lanes to the stadium. Westbound traffic traveling between Fee Lane and Dunn St. will not be allowed to enter Stadium lots.
Post-game Traffic Plan
The post-game traffic plan will also focus on one-way traffic patterns to allow vehicles quicker access to highways and main thoroughfares. Dunn Street and Fee Lane will both be one-way northbound to the 45/46 Bypass. The 45/46 Bypass will be one-way westbound from Fee Lane to Walnut Street and one-way eastbound from Fee Lane to 17th Street.
A post-game pedestrian crossing area will be created on 17th Street between Fess and Woodlawn Avenues to allow foot traffic to more easily cross from the stadium lots to the grass parking lots. On either side of the pedestrian crossing area, 17th Street will be one-way heading away from the Memorial Stadium.
The 45/46 Bypass will be one-way west from Fee Lane to Walnut Street (three lanes).
