Mayor Welcomes Visitors For Spring Football Game

Mayor Chris Beutler today welcomed visitors coming to Lincoln for the annual Husker spring football game at Memorial Stadium and urged them to plan ahead for travel and parking. Interstate 80 exits can be very congested on game days, so fans are encouraged to use Highway 6 (Cornhusker Highway), Highway 34 ("O" Street), the West Bypass and the Airport Exit as alternate routes. The City has no major street construction projects under way that would adversely affect traffic flow.

The City recommends reserving pre-paid, event parking at either lincoln.ne.gov or parkitdowntown.org until midnight Friday. City parking facilities offering all-day parking at the following garages and lots:

In addition to its regular routes, StarTran will provide Big Red Express bus service at two locations:

Buses will drop-off and depart from the east side of the stadium. The cost is $4 each way, and passengers will need exact change. The last buses will leave from the express lots to the stadium about 45 minutes prior to kickoff. Buses will depart immediately following the conclusion of the game. For more information, call 476-1234 or visit startran.lincoln.ne.gov.
