Troy University Bracing for Extra Traffic on Game Day


By Brittany Bivins

As Troy University prepares for one of the biggest games of its history, campus police officials are warning drivers to take a little extra time before the game to account for added traffic. The university is providing extra shuttle buses from hotels and the downtown area to help ease congestion, but more than 7,000 cars will likely still be on the roads.

"Game day traffic won't be terribly bad, but it's going to be a little heavier than normal, and parking's going to be hard to find, so you may have to park over towards the alumni hall or towards the band practice field and walk to the game," said John McCall, Troy University Police Chief.

University Boulevard will be closed beginning at 8 A.M. to encourage people to tailgate. Officers recommend planning alternate routes before heading out to the game.
