Today Friday, September 27, 2019 at 8:00 p.m., the University of Maryland will play Penn State at Maryland Stadium in College Park. This sold-out game is one of the most anticipated and talked about football matches this fall. The University of Maryland will not hold classes on campus after 12:00 p.m. and will provide administrative leave for staff to reduce traffic congestion from the thousands of fans coming to College Park.

To prepare for the game-related increase in traffic, please note the changes and recommendations below.

The 7300 block of Columbia Avenue will become a temporary No Parking Zone on September 27 from 6:00 a.m. until midnight. This is to allow Shuttle-UM service from the College Park Metro to the stadium (see map).

Traffic may be quite heavy at times, especially on Baltimore Avenue, University Boulevard, and Kenilworth Avenue near the University. Please plan accordingly and allow extra time to reach your destination. Consider staying in and watching the game from the comfort of your home!

Please follow all traffic advisories from the University of Maryland Police Department.

For any additional information or further advisories/notices leading up to the game, please follow the City’s Facebook and Twitter.
