Traffic, parking alert for weekend activities

March 21, 2017

Dear UNT Community,

Multiple events will be taking place across campus this weekend starting Thursday, March 23 through Sunday March 26. Most notably, our fellow alumni Eli Young Band will be back on campus performing a special concert for the UNT community. If you haven’t done so yet, get your special-priced tickets

Many people are expected to be in attendance on the UNT campus for the concert and other events throughout the weekend. Please be aware of impacts to parking and traffic, and prepare for congestion. Plan ahead and allow extra travel time to, from and on campus.

Traffic Alerts during Weekend Events

  • Resident Lots that will be directly impacted by these events are Lots 19, 20, 80, 81 and 85. All vehicles need to be cleared from these resident lots in an effort to prepare for heavy traffic and parking congestion. We are asking that residents temporarily relocate their vehicle by Thursday, March 23 at 7 a.m. and return to their permitted location no later than Sunday, March 26, 2017 by 10 a.m. Additional communication will be sent to those residents directly affected.
  • Fort Worth Drive/Highway 377: Because of I-35E construction and traffic flows, guests are encouraged to exit Fort Worth Drive (Highway 377) to reach their designated parking lots and avoid street closures.  
  • 35Express Project: The Texas Department of Transportation’s 35Express construction project for I-35E also will cause traffic delays. To find the most up-to-date information, visit http://www.35express.org and sign up for traffic text alerts and project email updates. You also can follow the project on Twitter at @35Express.
