Penn State Announces Traffic Adjustments Ahead Of Luke Combs Concert

Penn State Parking announced updated parking, traffic, and transit information ahead of the Luke Combs concert at Beaver Stadium on Saturday, April 27.

Heavy traffic is expected throughout the weekend, and the university urged drivers to be cautious and to allow extra time for their trips. The changes to campus and surrounding roads are as follows.

Student Parking Access

Student parking permits will be usable at all parking lots west of Bigler Road that typically allow student parking on weekends. Those areas are labeled as “E/W” on the parking map.

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use surface parking areas rather than parking decks on Saturday to allow more spaces for visitors.

Traffic Restrictions

As it has been all week, Curtin Road will be closed between University Drive and Porter Road through the conclusion of the concert. Porter Road will also be closed between Curtin Road and Park Avenue starting at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday.
