Texas A&M University Transportation Services officials expect increased traffic and congestion to the Bryan-College Station area today, even beyond what is typical of a home football Saturday.

Officials ask attendees to use shuttles from Downtown Bryan and Momentum Park and that fans download the Destination Aggieland mobile app for up-to-date information on game day activities.

Increased traffic and activity is expected around campus from 10 a.m. to the 2:30 p.m. kickoff and immediately after the game. Area residents should expect heavy traffic on Wellborn Road, University Drive and George Bush Drive and are advised to avoid those areas if possible, according to transportation officials. F.M. 2818 traffic is usually lighter pre-game and provides a faster route to many parking areas.

“To avoid the increased traffic and congestion expected for this weekend’s game, we are asking fans to arrive early to campus and to take advantage of free game day shuttles,” said Texas A&M Associate Vice President of Transportation Services Peter Lange. “If you are not attending the game, you should avoid the area around campus before and after the game.”

The following roads will close beginning at 10:30 a.m.:

• Coke Street closes north of Lewis Street — access allowed for D permits and disabled parking; opens 1.5 hours post-game.

• Olsen Boulevard closes near Reed Arena — access allowed for E, G, P permits & ParkMobile permits; opens 1.5 hours post-game.

• Houston Street closes at George Bush Drive — access only for C permits, Lot 69 & Texas A&M Foundation; opens one hour post-game.

• Joe Routt/Stallings Boulevard closes until 1.5 hours post-game.

Several other road closures begin around the start of the fourth quarter to help fans exit the parking lots and garages.
