The Marshall University Department of Athletics is encouraging football game day permit holders that plan on arriving at stadium parking lots during the end of the homecoming parade to utilize alternate routes to avoid congestion.
The Marshall Homecoming parade will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will be ending on 20th street (Marshall Memorial Blvd.) at approximately 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. Twentieth Street will be temporarily closed to through traffic once the parade reaches that point.
All individuals that have reserved parking at or near Joan C. Edwards Stadium with the exception of the Annex and C-lot are asked to utilize the 29th Street exit off of I-64 and continue to Third Ave. The north gate of the west lot off of 3rd Avenue will be open for vehicles to enter the parking lot while 20th street is closed for the parade.
Annex and C-lot permit holders are asked to take 6th or 7th Avenue east bound to 20th street. C-lot permit holders will be able to access the lot from the traditional entry point off of 5th Avenue. Annex permit holders at 20th street will head east bound on 5th avenue and turn left on 21st Street before reaching the McDonalds. The annex lot can be accessed through 4 ½ alley.
All football permit lots will open to pass holders at 10 a.m. Saturday.
