Transportation & Traffic
Parking will be extremely limited in the Sports Complex area. Fans are highly encouraged to make transportation plans in advance and ARRIVE EARLY to avoid traffic congestion.
Parking & Traffic Tips from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office
- Fans without pre-paid parking passes should use general parking. As in past years, JSO anticipates that general public parking in the Sports Complex area will fill up five hours prior to kickoff and lots open at 6 a.m. Private lots near the stadium fill up just as fast.
- Arrive early. The stadium gates open at 1:30 p.m. At 1:30 p.m. the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office’s focus will shift to pedestrian traffic. Vehicle traffic to the stadium should expect delays.
- Sign boards will be up on major roadways throughout the city with parking information.
- Follow @JSOPIO on Twitter or visit www.twitter.com/JSOPIO for live traffic updates. Visit www.jaxsheriff.org for additional helpful maps. Follow @FLvsGA on Twitter or visit www.twitter.com/FLvsGA for live updates on events surrounding the game.
