The University is warning students, faculty and staff that traffic around campus may be heavy Wednesday when the Prelibertadores 2000 International Soccer Doubleheader comes to the newly renovated Robertson Stadium.
Officials said they expect 25,000 people to attend the event, which could bring an additional 8,000 cars to campus. The soccer games will begin at 7 and 9 p.m.
For those arriving on campus Wednesday evening, parking will likely be most difficult around and near the stadium. The stadium parking lots (15D and 15F), as well as other lots near Cullen Boulevard (including 16B, the Fine Arts lot) will probably be crowded.
Students, faculty and staff who want to avoid the traffic completely around 7 p.m., and after the games, may want to consider an alternate route to campus -- for example, via the new Texas Spur 5, which allows access to the east side of campus via University Drive (Entrance 1) and Wheeler Street.
Traffic might also be avoided by approaching campus from the south via MacGregor Drive.
The Daily Cougar will carry more detailed information next week regarding
parking and traffic changes for the event.
