Winning game plan for FSU fans: Leave plenty of time for travel

Florida State University announced today some changes in the traffic patterns fans are accustomed to on football game days, as well as additions to the list of items that will be banned from the stadium.

"We are all excited about the first football game of the season, and we want fans to have a safe, enjoyable day," said David L. Perry, the university's assistant vice president for safety and chief of police. "That's why it is extremely important that they pay attention to the changes this year."

The first home game will be Saturday, Sept. 5, when the Seminoles take on the Texas State Bobcats. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. 

GETTING THERE: 

TRAFFIC INSTRUCTIONS: Fans parking around the stadium are encouraged to use the following roadways to gain access to parking on and around FSU's campus, AND are encouraged to add extra time for travel as some changes are in place this year for traffic.

  • From the north, use Stadium Drive or Macomb Street to Pensacola Street.
  • From the east, use Pensacola or Gaines streets.
  • From the west, use Pensacola or Tennessee streets to Stadium Drive.
  • From the south, use Lake Bradford Road. 

Pensacola Street will not be reversed after the game. Traffic leaving the game toward the east will use St. Augustine toward Monroe Street. Side streets may be utilized as needed by motorists. State and local law enforcement officers will staff roadways surrounding the stadium before and after home games to assist with traffic flow.
