Drivers are urged to plan ahead when traveling downtown Thursday night as traffic is expected to be busy due to two big events.
Metro police sent out a traffic advisory earlier in the week warning of the hectic roadways as football fans head to LP Field for the Titan-Steelers game and as concert-goers make their way to Public Square Park for the final Live On The Green performance for this year.
The Woodland Street Bridge will close to regular traffic at 4:30 p.m. for the game and will only be available to pedestrians and shuttle buses.
A shuttle will be available to patrons parking for the game from state parking lots at 4th Avenue North and Harrison Street and from 10th Circle North downtown.
Shuttle service will also be available from Greer Stadium beginning at 5:45 p.m.
It's important to note that football fans who normally park in state employee lots will not have access to those spaces until 5 p.m., when they are vacated by state workers.
The final Live On The Green concert for the season is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. and will feature music from Here Come The Mummies.
