NORMAN — Game-day traffic and parking concerns return Saturday with Oklahoma's home opener against Florida A&M.
Police have modified the traffic plan for public streets around Gaylord Family — Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. This year, Boyd Street will be closed to vehicle traffic at University and Asp. Traffic will be diverted northbound on University and northbound on Jenkins.
As usual, traffic on Lindsey will be one way going to the game and one way leaving after the game, and will be closed at Elm and Jenkins.
Customers using the Union Parking Garage are being asked to enter the area from the east and use the entry access point on the east side of Boyd and Asp in an effort to increase pedestrian safety.
Boyd Street will close approximately three hours before kickoff, which is scheduled for 6 p.m.
All public street parking will be identified by signs and yellow curbs. Yellow curbs, fire lanes and tow zones will be monitored and the regulations enforced.
