Monitored pre-game traffic control begins three hours before kickoff. Woodland Avenue will be closed, beginning at Euclid Avenue. Permit holders with a Red, Red Suite, Red Disabled, Orange, or PS1 pass who intend to access those lots from that direction should use Rose Street to Huguelet to University Drive as your connector route.

Farm Road will be closed at Nicholasville Road at all times and will only be used by emergency vehicles if needed. All Red and Orange permits must use University Drive for access to Commonwealth Stadium.
