and Parking Information

To View the map for Game Day Traffic Flow and Parking Information, click here.

The University of Arkansas Police, Fayetteville Police Department and the Arkansas State Police work cooperatively to manage the flow of traffic to and away from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. As it was last year, there will be no parking in the residential neighborhood west of the football stadium and violators will be towed. Traffic will continue to be restricted around the football stadium four hours before kickoff.

BEFORE GAME

Fans entering campus from north, west or east of the campus should use the four lane routes, Wedington Drive and North Street. These streets intersect North Garland Avenue and at that intersection traffic will be turned one way southbound to the intersection of Garland Avenue and Maple Street. Police officers will be on post before each game to ensure the traffic is safely going one way southbound. We recommend that all reserve/scholarship parking permit holders going south on Garland Avenue merge into the right lane as soon as possible. At the intersection of Garland and Maple, only reserved/scholarship traffic will be allowed to drive west on Maple. Public parking will be located to the east of Garland Avenue.

Maple Street is one way westbound for reserved/scholarship traffic from Garland Avenue to Stadium Drive. Stadium Drive will run one way south from Maple Street to Meadow Street. Maple Street west of Stadium Drive will run both directions but eastbound traffic on Maple Street must turn south onto Stadium Drive.  East of Garland Avenue, Maple Street will be open to two way traffic from Garland Avenue to Arkansas Avenue.

Fans entering campus from the south and those using Interstate 540 are encouraged to use the Cato Springs Road exit off of Interstate 540. An officer will be on Highway 265 directing traffic northbound on Highway 265 which turns into Razorback Road. Signs will be posted showing direction of public parking. Only reserved/scholarship parking permits will be allowed on Razorback Road north of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.

Shuttle buses will run from both public parking areas at Baum Stadium to the game (buses will return to those areas after the game). A bus map can be found here.  Reserved/scholarship traffic will drive two lanes one way northbound on Razorback Road from Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to Maple Street. Meadow Street from Razorback Road to Stadium Drive will be two way traffic. Leroy Pond Drive from Razorback to Clinton Drive will be two way traffic.

We do recommend that any reserved/scholarship parking permit holders for lots on Razorback Road enter from Interstate 540 and come north up Razorback Road.  From Maple Street traffic on Razorback Road can go no farther south than the driveway to Lot 72.

AFTER GAME

Fans leaving the football stadium going north on Razorback Road will be turned eastbound on Maple Street. No traffic will be allowed to continue north on Razorback Road from the Maple Street intersection. That eastbound traffic will be merged into the center and left lane on Maple Street. The right lane will be used for traffic coming northbound on Stadium Drive. At the intersection of Maple Street and Garland Avenue, traffic in the right lane will have the option of turning south on Garland Avenue (it should be noted that traffic may be very slow) or east on Maple Street. The middle lane will have the option of going east on Maple Street or north on Garland Avenue. The left lane will be turned north on Garland Avenue to the intersection of North Street and Garland Avenue. At that location traffic in the right lane will have the option of turning east on North Street or going north on Garland Avenue. The left lane will be turned west on Wedington. To summarize, Garland Avenue will be one way north after the game from Maple Street to North Street and Maple Street will be one way east after the game from Garland Avenue to Arkansas Avenue. Traffic will not be allowed to go west from Garland Avenue to Razorback Road.

Fans leaving the football stadium going south will be sent two lanes south on Razorback Road from the football stadium to Martin Luther King, Jr. Bouldvard. At that location traffic will be turned westbound to Interstate 540. From there traffic may go north or south, but it is recommended that once on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, traffic wanting to go north on Interstate 540 merge into the right lane of as soon as possible, and traffic wanting to go southbound on Interstate 540 merge into the left lane as soon as possible. All westbound traffic on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard approaching the intersection with Razorback Road will be turned southbound on Razorback Road at the intersection. Traffic will run two lanes southbound from Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to Interstate 540. Traffic will be able to turn north from Highway 265 to the on ramp to Interstate N540 and south from Highway 265 to the on ramp to Interstate S540. The off ramp from Highway 71 north to Cato Springs Road will be blocked and no exit will be allowed until football traffic is safely cleared. Meadow Street from Razorback Road to Stadium Drive will be two way traffic. Leroy Pond Drive from Razorback to Clinton Drive will be blocked. Note: Local traffic coming northbound on Highway 265 toward Interstate 540 will either turn south onto Interstate 540 or be detained until traffic clears safely onto the Interstate 540.

FOR SAFETY, PEDESTRIANS LEAVING THE WEST SIDE OF RAZORBACK STADIUM WILL BE REQUIRED TO WALK ON THE EAST SIDEWALK AND AVOID WALKING ON RAZORBACK ROAD. OFFICERS WILL ENFORCE THIS REQUIREMENT.
