JUCO Parking and Pedestrian Tips to Help You Enjoy the Game #GVCopBeat #JUCO

Posted on

imageThe 2014 JUCO World Series is about to get underway, which means it’s a very exciting time for Grand Junction.  It also means there will be a whole lot of cars in and around Suplizio Field for the next week.  To keep this a fun and safe event, we have some reminders for people trying to get to the games:

  • Get there early– parking is on a first come, first served basis, so get to the stadium early if you want to park in the Lincoln Park parking lot.
  • Please be considerate– make sure your vehicle is between the lines and only take up one space.
  • If the sign says no parking, don’t park there.
  • If you choose to park on a nearby neighborhood street, make sure you aren’t blocking a driveway or fire hydrant.  Residents need to be able to safely enter and exit their driveways.
  • As each night game ends, all lanes in the Lincoln Park parking lot will become exit only lanes- no cars will be allowed into the parking lot. That means parents need to make arrangements to pick up kids at a nearby location away from the stadium.
  • There is a great shuttle bus system that is free for anyone with a JUCO pass or single game ticket.  Get more information about the route and times.image
  • Pedestrians- make sure to use designated crosswalks.  Traffic control devices will be set up along North Ave to prevent people from crossing in the middle of the street.
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. That way you know if the drivers are aware of your presence before you step into the roadway.
