Our friends at ASU Parking and Transportation just put out an email that might be a great reminder about road conditions. The first game of the season can sometimes catch us by surprise. Speaking of "catching by surprise," we need to get to the game and be loud, rowdy, fun, excited etc etc.. There is no reason to overlook any team and Rudy and the guys need to kick some serious Lumberjack tail.
Here's the scoop on the roads.
"Several streets around the Tempe campus will be closed on Saturday for the ASU football game against Northern Arizona at 7 p.m.
The following streets will be closed two hours prior to kick-off until the start of the game:
Veterans Way in both directions between Sixth Street and College Avenue
Westbound Rio Salado Parkway at McClintock Drive
The following streets will be closed two hours prior to kick-off until one hour after the game ends:
Eastbound Rio Salado Parkway between Ash and Mill Avenues

Parking and Transit Services has no further information on these restrictions. PTS does not close or restrict City of Tempe streets; PTS relays traffic notices to our customers so they can better plan their travels around the Tempe campus.
