Mayor Encourages Football Fans to Plan Ahead

Mayor Chris Beutler today encouraged those coming to downtown Lincoln for the annual Husker spring football game at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6 to plan ahead for travel and parking. The City offers two options to help fans avoid delays:

The City also wants fans to be aware of changes with the downtown parking meters, which are enforced on Saturdays. Many new meters will now accept credit cards, and the rate has increased to $1 an hour. Construction projects also may create traffic issues. In the Haymarket, a small portion of North 7th Street is partially closed, and several building construction projects are impacting parking and sidewalk spaces. Repair of the North 27th Street viaduct is also resulting in lane closures from Holdrege Street to Cornhusker Highway.
