STATE COLLEGE - The State College Spikes and Penn State Transportation Services have announced parking and traffic information for Saturday's 7:35 p.m. New York-Penn League playoff game at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
Penn State hosts Eastern Michigan for a football game at noon Saturday at Beaver Stadium, leaving an approximate period of four hours between events. Some outbound traffic and remaining vehicles from the football game may still impact inbound traffic and parking for the playoff game.
All adjacent stadium lots will be available for Spikes game parking, but fans should allow extra time to arrive at the ballpark. As a courtesy to fans, there will be no parking charge for Saturday's Spikes playoff game.
Parking will be available in Lot 44 (Jordan East) and Stadium West lots. Spikes permit holders, VIPs and ADA will be able to access the Porter North lot. Porter South will be reserved for Spikes staff and players.
Visitors are asked to use caution while traveling within the parking lots, as some vehicles and pedestrians may remain in the lots after the football game.
Two-way traffic flow in and out of the areas surrounding Beaver Stadium and Medlar Field at Lubrano Park is expected to be restored within two hours following the completion of the football game. Fans looking to arrive for the Spikes game between 5:30 and 6:30 should access the stadium parking lots via Park Avenue or University Drive. Later arriving traffic can also access the ballpark from East College Avenue and Porter Road.
Ballpark gates will open to the public at 6 p.m. for the 7:35 p.m. contest.
Fans with additional parking questions are invited to call the Spikes at (814) 272-1711 or Penn State Parking at (814) 865-1436.
