•Drive aisles and fire lanes need to be kept clear at all times for free access of emergency vehicles.

• Trucks, trailers and other oversized vehicles (not including buses) will be directed to park along the curbs in the parking lots so they do not take up additional lined parking spaces.  Please arrive early to find a location along the curb or in another location in which your vehicle will not occupy more than one parking space.

• Trucks, trailers, buses and other oversized vehicles are not permitted to park in the enclosed structured parking deck on the east side of the Sports Complex (next to the IZOD Center).

• Ticket holders should cross roadways at the designated crosswalks and should not walk on the active roadways that lead to and from the Sports Complex.
