Grass Parking Lots To Close for Michigan State Game

Penn State’s Senior Day game against Michigan State tomorrow will have a less impressive tailgating scene than usual, as all grass car parking lots, both reserved and gameday, will be closed due to Wednesday’s snow and the wet conditions of the ground.

Penn State is encouraging drivers who normally take RVs to the game to instead take a passenger vehicle, and they should leave extra time for parking. The press release also notes that remote lots not owned by Penn State are drug, alcohol, and tobacco free.

“Penn State is asking football patrons coming to the Big Ten East Division clash to be patient and understanding, as the wet conditions in the area could take 2,500 or more parking spaces offline for the game,” reads the press release. “Gameday operations staff will direct impacted vehicles to alternate parking lots.”

Penn State is offering free shuttle services from off-campus lots to the stadium from noon until an hour after the game. Eight shuttle routes will be running to bring attendees from outer lots back to Beaver Stadium and vice versa. Anybody with a parking permit can park in a remote lot and take a shuttle to the game at no cost.

Here are the eight shuttle routes Penn State will provide:

Route 1: Innovation Park (100 Building Lot, 103 Building Lot & 329 Building Lot)

Route 2: Mountain View Country Club (100 Elks Club Road, Boalsburg), Mount Nittany Middle School (656 Brandywine Drive)

Route 3: Technology Support Building (Old Raytheon Building, 300 Science Park Road) & Chemcut (500 Science Park Road), Sound Technologies (old Jostens)   (401 Science Park Road )

Route 4: State College Area High School, North and South Buildings (653 Westerly Parkway)

Route 5: Summit Park (Old Corning Plant, 3500 East College & Celebration Hall (2280 Commercial Blvd.)

Route 6: Park Forest Baptist Church (3030 Carnegie Drive). Park Forest Middle School Upper North Parking Lot (2180 School Drive), Park Forest Elementary School (2181 School Drive) and Park Forest Pool (School Drive).

Route 7: Red A (West Campus Lots)

Route 8: Penn State Golf Course (1523 W. College Ave.)Old O.W. Houts Lot (120 N. Buckhout Street)

And here are more details from the release:

  • Vehicles that already have a gameday parking permit (Yellow) will not be permitted to park in the lots near Beaver Stadium or in any campus parking lots. Patrons who are displaying a Yellow permit will be directed to park in lots at Innovation Park, Red A (west of N. Atherton Street), or any of the remote parking lots listed below, and take a shuttle to a drop-off location near the stadium;
  • Fans who plan to purchase a gameday parking permit will not be permitted to park in the lots near Beaver Stadium or in any campus parking lots. Those patrons are asked to park in a downtown parking lot/deck and take the CATA Gameday Football Shuttle, which operates primarily from downtown and areas south of the stadium to a drop-off location near the stadium (see below); OR
  • Fans who plan to purchase a gameday parking permit (Yellow) also can park at the Technology Support Building (formerly Raytheon) at 300 Science Park Road for $10 and take a free shuttle to drop-off location near the stadium.
  • The overnight RV lot will open Saturday at 8 a.m.

CATA’s gameday shuttle will begin at 12:30 p.m. and run until an hour after the game. Fullington’s football express will run from 12:30 p.m. at their normal locations.
