Ohio State News Alert: Plan ahead, arrive early for spring game, race this weekend

Expect travel, parking and bus delays around the campus area

Motorists are encouraged to plan for travel delays on and near campus this weekend because of the Ohio State LiFEsports Spring Game and the Ohio State 4 Miler.

Multiple roadways will be closed, limited parking will be available and CABS transit service will be suspended for portions of the weekend of April 15 and 16.

Additionally, work related to the Cannon Drive relocation is causing traffic and bus changes in the area. Cannon between 12th Avenue and John H. Herrick Drive; the Herrick and Cannon intersection; and the Herrick bridge are all closed.

Changes because of the major events include:

  • Tuttle and Northwest parking garages will be closed after the Saturday spring game and reopen after the Sunday 4 Miler event.
  • Access to parking areas within the 4 Miler event route will be limited/delayed.
  • All CABS routes, including CABS On-Demand and paratransit service, will be suspended during the game and race.

Motorists are encouraged to allow for additional travel time. Be prepared for heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic before, during and after the events. 

The noon spring game exhibition at Ohio Stadium is expected to attract at least 50,000 fans to the campus area.
