Buckeye fans will see new traffic patterns on game day

Construction and renovations lead to parking and transportation changes

Fans are back in Ohio Stadium this fall as the Buckeyes make another run toward the College Football Playoffs.

For a winning fan experience, The Ohio State University is encouraging attendees to allow additional time to get in and out of the stadium area as traffic and parking changes may cause delays.

Ohio State continues to invest in the future of teaching, research and patient care through active construction projects that will change the way to get to and from campus on game day. Here are some of the important details:

  • If you’re parking and riding from west campus, you’ll now board shuttles at Carmack 1 – the far eastern parking lot – rather than the Mount Hall Loop, which is under construction.
  • Shuttles will drop off at the Herrick Drive Transit Hub, south of Ohio Stadium. At the end of the game, you can board the shuttles at the Herrick Drive Transit Hub to go back to Carmack 1.
  • John Herrick Drive, including the Herrick Bridge and Vernon L. Tharp Street, will be closed with limited access to parking. Please look for different routes.
  • Woody Hayes Drive will be closed between John Herrick Drive and Kenny Road. If you’re trying to get to west campus or the Ag Lot parking, you should find different routes along Lane Avenue and Fyffe Road. 
  • COTA will not run transit service this season from the Fairgrounds or Crosswoods Park. 
  • Fans will have access to COTA’s fixed-route bus service on game day. Lines 1, 2, 8, 22, 31 and 102 all serve the Ohio State campus area and most provide service every 15 to 30 minutes.
