2012 Gameday Central: Exiting the Stadium on Sept. 8

Due to the high volume of traffic caused by a capacity crowd, exiting Kelly/Shorts Stadium on September 8 will be more difficult than a typical game. Fans are encouraged to remain at the stadium for postgame activities to avoid long delays. Fans leaving near the conclusion of the game are reminded to expect delays.

Egress routes will be marked and patroled from the beginning of the fourth quarter to approximately 90 minutes after the game.

Law enforcement officials and the Department of Transportation, in cooperation with CMU, have developed the postgame traffic exit strategy for September 8 designed to provide the safest, most efficient environment for both pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Traffic from each parking lot will be dispersed from the stadium on a mandated route to just outside of town. Please review the detailed directions and maps below before pre-purchasing a parking pass in order to select the easiest route in and out of town.

EXIT MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
