New Parking Lots for 2014
Nicholson Apts. Project (Reserved Permits) – 800 spaces
Golf Course Driving Range (Public) – 800 spaces
Gourrier at River Road – “Levee Lots South” (Public) – 700 spaces
LSU will maximize current on-campus parking space with additional personnel and painting of spaces in public parking lots.
LSU will enforce directional exiting from parking lots. Additional personnel have been hired to assist fans with exiting into the correct post-game direction.
Southbound traffic on Nicholson Drive/Highway 30 will be contraflowed (all lanes in use) from south of Skip Bertman Drive to Bluebonnet Drive.
Street Parking Not Allowed on Burbank and Nicholson
For safety concerns, street parking will not be allowed on Nicholson Drive/Highway 30 and Burbank Drive south of Skip Bertman Drive. Tailgating is still allowed in the grass areas adjacent to Nicholson Drive, however, vehicles will not be allowed to park in this area. Fans tailgating in these areas are encouraged to use the Old Front Nine free parking lot.
Pedestrian Buffer Zone on Nicholson Dr.
A pedestrian buffer zone will be created on Nicholson Drive for fans exiting Tiger Stadium heading west. Nicholson Drive between North Stadium and South Stadium Drive will have no post-game vehicular traffic. Traffic will be forced north and south at these streets with no cross traffic allowed. This operation will allow fans to cross Nicholson Drive without competing vehicular traffic as well as assisting with the contraflow process and the forced directional exit in the parking lots around the stadium.
