    Rain limits some ISU football public parking

    Steady rain showers late Tuesday prompted ISU officials to close additional areas in some public parking lots for the Sept. 2 Iowa State-Northern Illinois football game. Grass lots G-4, G-5 and G-8 will have limited availability due to saturated ground. The public lots north of Center Drive also remain closed to accommodate flood recovery work in Hilton Coliseum.

    Fans are encouraged to car pool and utilize smaller vehicles, rather than bring buses and RVs. Early arrival to the game also is advised.

    Public parking areas near the College of Veterinary Medicine and all donor lots are expected to remain accessible. Public parking options include the use of paved campus parking lots after 5 p.m. The free CyRide Orange (No.4) route will operate from the Kmart parking lot (1405 Buckeye Ave., off South 16th Street), beginning at 5 p.m. and running until after the conclusion of the game. Riders are cautioned that wait times between shuttles, especially after the game, could be long.

    All available lots open at 1 p.m. Thursday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Public parking costs are $20 per car ($40 for RVs and buses, which are discouraged for this week's game).

    Before someone asks, the student lots are not included in the limited ability mentioned in this release.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Typically we tailgate in G4, looks like we are heading to the student lot. Man I am going to love to stare at the talent again!

    Haunted forest will probably only allow so many cars.

    Re: Rain limits some ISU football public parking

    As of 7pm Wed. night G2/G3 (student lots) and G8 are fine. G4/G5 are only painted for half of the lots because of still standing water in a portion of G5. The Haunted Forest yesterday was all dirt (I think they tore out most the grass or something?) I'm guessing that's a mess after last nights rain but I didn't drive by it today.

    Haunted Forest re-did the barrier along the water if I'm not mistaken. Its been like that for a few weeks.

    I am right now in D2, an RV donor lot. The donor lots are all back to normal. The pavement has been cleaned. Some minor damage to the paving has been fixed. Crews are working on the stadium sound/video system. From what I heard coming from the Jack, it didn't sound like the old sound system to me! Much louder and clearer.

    I would say that there are as many RV's here as there were last year for the first game and probably more. No rain yet.
