Penn State Announces New Details on One-Way Traffic Patterns for Football Parking

by on March 01, 2019 3:37 PM

Penn State Athletics announced on Thursday start times for new one-way traffic patterns that will be part of the new home football game parking system for 2019.

The new parking system, which was unveiled in November, divided the lots around Beaver Stadium into four different traffic zones: North, South, East, and West. Each zone will only be accessible only by a specific route beginning at 8:30 a.m. prior to noon kickoffs and four hours before games beginning at any other time. The one-way pattern will take effect at 11:30 a.m. prior to a game slated to begin at 3:30 p.m., for example.

Fans can only access the North parking zone via Fox Hollow Road, and the South zone will only be accessible through University Drive or Porter Road via US-26/College Ave. The East zone can be reached from US-322 and I-99, and patrons can get to the West zone from Park Avenue via Atherton Street.

Beaver Stadium’s parking lots will still open at 7 a.m. prior to noon kickoffs and at 8 a.m. before all other games. All parking permits issued for the 2019 season will include your zone and specific driving directions on how to get to your spot. If you take the incorrect route to your parking spot, you’ll be re-routed to the correct zone.

Additionally, there will be a one-way traffic pattern in effect for 90 minutes after the conclusion of each home game. Fans will have to leave their lot via the driving instructions on their permit within 90 minutes after the game ends. After that, fans are free to leave their parking spot via any route.

Penn State previously announced that there will also be three general parking cash lots in the North, West, and East traffic zones. You can find the updated parking map here.
