Directional signage will be added along Stadium Way directing people to general, A/B and R parking. Signage at the entrance to lots will also be upgraded to reflective signs.
General parking signage will be added at Wilson and Stadium Way directing people down Wilson to Ellis Way. This will deliver cars to the lot behind the IPF.
Signage will be added at the intersections of Stadium Way and North Fairway and South Fairway directing people to appropriate lots.
Postgame Traffic Control
In an attempt to alleviate post-game traffic congestion, the following traffic control plan involving various detours to Stadium Way, has been devised.
WSU Police will be much more visible postgame.
Traffic control will be located at Stadium Way and Orchard Rd, North Fairway, South Fairway Rd, and Fairway Ln. Traffic control will also be located at Orchard Rd and Fairway Ln., Fairway Ln. and North Fairway Rd, Fairway Ln and South Fairway Rd and South Fairway Rd and Ellis Way.
Cars exiting the A/B lot from the SW entrance (by tennis courts) onto South Fairway Rd. will only be able to turn right heading towards Stadium Way.
Cars exiting the A/B lot from the SE entrance (by IPF) will not be allowed to turn right onto South Fairway Rd to reach Stadium Way. They will be able to continue south on Johnson Road towards Stadium Way or turn left onto South Fairway Road. From South Fairway Road, they will take a right onto Ellis Way which naturally turns into Wilson Road which intersects with Stadium Way.
Cars exiting the A/B lot from the NE entrance (by Beasley) will be able to continue straight on Fairway Ln to reach Orchard Rd or turn left onto North Fairway to reach Stadium Way.
Cars exiting the West entrance of the blue lot East of Beasley Coliseum will have to turn right on Fairway Ln. At the intersection of Orchard Rd and Fairway Ln, cars will have to turn right and return to Stadium Way via Valley Road.
Cars exiting the general parking lot behind the Indoor Practice Facility will be able to exit to the right up South Fairway Rd to Ellis Way or straight out of the lot to Roundtop Dr and then to Wilson Road.
Please be advised that those using the alternative routes to Stadium Way versus exiting directly onto Stadium Way from parking areas will most likely spend less time sitting in traffic.
