BATON ROUGE - LSU has issued a reminder concerning various elements of football game day parking and traffic in preparation for Saturday's Homecoming game against ULM which will kick off at 6 p.m.
Traffic advisory for LSU football game against UL-Monroe
LSU Day, as well as other Homecoming activities, will be taking place on campus this Saturday. These events will be pedestrian-oriented causing additional street and parking lot closures aside from the customary football game day closures.
On Saturday, November 13, game day closures will be in effect, including 7 a.m. closures of the following streets: Dalrymple, west of Tower Drive; South Campus, west of Forestry Lane; South Stadium between Nicholson and Forestry Lane; North Stadium Drive; Fieldhouse and Cypress Drives. Depending on the amount of traffic, the following roads may also be closed around 3 or 4 p.m.: Dalrymple, South Campus, and South Stadium at Highland Road.
In addition, South Campus Drive from East Campus Drive to Minnie Fisk Drive will close to through traffic from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. for LSU Day activities.
Homecoming Parade and LSU Day Shuttles
At 12 p.m., the Homecoming parade will begin rolling from the LSU System Building and travel throughout campus.
Shuttles will run continuously from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. throughout campus to shorten the walk to LSU Day activities. These shuttles are running to LSU Day activities only and will not drop fans off at Tiger Stadium.

Construction Related Traffic Adjustments for UL-Monroe and Ole Miss
Sewer construction north of the LSU campus will affect the routing of game day traffic in that area for the final two home games of the season.
- For traffic traveling south on Nicholson Drive toward Tiger Stadium before the game, Baton Rouge Police will be checking for parking passes at the McKinley Street intersection instead of the usual Roosevelt Street intersection checkpoint. Any vehicles without reserved parking passes will be directed to turn at McKinley Street.
- For vehicles on Highland Road before the game, traffic that normally travels on Roosevelt Street will be directed to McKinley Street once the parking lot at the corner of Highland and Roosevelt is full.
