Heavy traffic expected for Blue-Gold game Saturday, detours advised

Author: Julie Hail Flory


Visitors to the University of Notre Dame campus for the Blue-Gold spring football game Saturday (April 22) and other athletic events taking place this weekend may encounter traffic delays and redirection due to road closures and an expected high volume of vehicles on the road.

Due to the closure of Douglas Road east of Juniper Road, fans arriving from the east should consider one of the following alternate routes to campus:

•East or west on Cleveland Road to southbound Juniper to parking areas north of the stadium (Library, D2 North Lots, and White Field North)

•Edison Road east or west to parking lots south of the Joyce Center and Notre Dame Stadium

•From the Indiana Toll Road, north to Cleveland and south on Juniper to north parking areas

Parking on campus is free and available on a first-come, first-served basis in the lots referenced above, with shuttle service provided between White Field and the library before, during and after the game.

The one-way traffic pattern that is in effect during the regular football season will not be used Saturday, and law enforcement officials expect traffic to be heavy.
