Coliseum issues traffic alert for Thursday concerts
The Memorial Coliseum today issued a traffic alert for two concerts scheduled Thursday.
Large crowds are expected for both concerts taking place at the same time, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra event in the arena and the Jeremy Camp & Matthew West event in the Expo Center, the Coliseum said in a statement.
Because of construction and lane shifts on Coliseum Boulevard, concertgoers are asked to allow additional time for travel and to get through security before the start of the shows.
The heaviest traffic is expected between 5 and 8 p.m.
Those not attending the shows are asked to seek alternate routes and to avoid the area during early evening hours, the Coliseum said.
