MSU Game-Day Traffic and Parking Plans Set

STARKVILLE, Miss. – The natural byproduct of building construction currently underway near Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field and street alterations immediately south of the stadium have caused adjustments to the traffic flow and game-day parking lots on football weekends at Mississippi State University.

MSU reserved parking lots No. 3, 5 and 15 no longer exist due to current or planned construction projects, and half of lot No. 11 will be used for game-day disabled parking. Bulldog fans that parked in those lots last year have been moved to new areas this season, and are encouraged to review their parking location by referencing the map on the reverse of their parking pass.

Pay lots for those fans that do not own a reserved parking pass are available at the MSU Wise Center (vet school) and the intramural fields south of the stadium, east of Hardy Rd., west of sorority row, and north of Humphrey Coliseum. A complimentary shuttle service is also offered for those individuals using the free parking at the research and technology park.

Fans attending State's games this season should also observe game-day traffic flow, as described on the parking and traffic flyer that accompanied their parking pass. B.S. Hood Rd., immediately west of the stadium, will be closed six hours before game time, as will West Lee Blvd. at Tracy Ave., and Barr Ave. at Collegeview St. and George Perry St.

Following MSU home games this season, there will be no re-direction of streets on the campus leaving the stadium area. All normal traffic patterns will be in effect. The exit strategy post-game is to move all traffic toward Highway 12 or Highway 82.

Fans are encouraged to visit the website or follow the links from the front page of the university site for more information.

On the field Thursday, the Bulldogs worked for just over two hours, earning Head Coach Sylvester Croom's praise for their attention to detail.

"We got a lot done today in a lot of different situations, goal-line and our two-minute offense," Croom said.

The Bulldogs donned shells today, wearing helmets and shoulder pads with shorts.
