Football season is almost here, and with recent flooding, parking arrangements will have some changes.

The flooding earlier this month has caused a large portion of the grass lots G4 and G5 to be overly soggy and unusable for this season. Until these areas can be reseeded, staff will be on hand to direct fans to other areas when available lots are filled.

Public parking lots for the game will open at 1 p.m. Thursday. Public parking near the stadium is $20 per car and $40 for RVs and buses.

Students who normally park in the Iowa State Center commuter lots will be asked to move their cars to the Kmart and Staples parking lot on Duff Avenue, Lot 29, Lot 29B or the Memorial Union parking ramp. Parking at the Memorial Union Ramp will be charged at the normal hourly parking rates

All stadium permit holders must move their cars by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday and may return their cars to the stadium before noon on Friday. Stadium student parkers will also receive an e-mail with more information.

Commuters may ride CyRide’s Orange Route free from the east side of the Kmart lot to campus. Pickup from the Kmart lot will run every 15 minutes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 2.

The ISU parking division advises people to carpool or walk to the game.
