New Solution for Razorback Football Game Traffic

As a result of the high attendance at Razorback football games, Razorback Athletics has partnered with the Fayetteville Police Department and the University of Arkansas Police Department to create color coded pre-game and post-game traffic routes in hopes of clearing the usual jam around the stadium.

The new colored routes are being implemented to provide fans with the easiest, most direct way to get to their desired location. After receiving a parking pass from the Razorback Foundation, fans can expect to receive a recommended route color for entering and exiting the stadium based on their designated parking lot.

Maps and descriptions of the routes can be found below:

Blue Route (Razorback Road and Cato Springs Road) – Based primarily west of the stadium on Razorback Road, the blue route will serve those in parking lots 46, 47N, 55, 56, 56B, 56D, 59, 60, 62, 72R and 73A, Meadow Street Parking Garage and The Gardens. The blue route includes entry from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Razorback Road/Cato Springs Road. Post-game traffic will be routed exclusively to the Razorback Road/Cato Springs Road exit on I-49. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard is not an option post-game.
