Best Route To The Game?
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – As part of a continuing effort to help expedite game vehicular traffic while protecting the safety of pedestrians, Razorback Athletics has partnered with the Fayetteville Police Department and the University of Arkansas Police Department (UAPD) to implement color coded pre-game and post-game traffic routes for Razorback Football games.
The changes are designed to help ease congestion in pre-game traffic while also clearing traffic from around the stadium in a more efficient manner following the game. The color coded routes are designed to provide the most efficient and direct route to and from the stadium for fans based on their parking locations, including preferred routes to access I-49. For convenience of Razorback fans, all parking passes issued by the Razorback Foundation will include the color of the route that is recommended for entry and exit from their designated parking lot.
Blue Route (Razorback Road and Cato Springs Road) – Based primarily west of the stadium on Razorback Road, the blue route will serve those in parking lots 46, 47N, 55, 56, 56B, 56D, 59, 60, 62, 72R and 73A, Meadow Street Parking Garage and The Gardens. The blue route includes entry from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Razorback Road/Cato Springs Road. Post-game traffic will be routed exclusively to the Razorback Road/Cato Springs Road exit on I-49. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard is not an option post-game.

The shuttle service provides trips back to Baum Stadium until all fans are returned to their vehicles after the conclusion of the game.
Fans should access both Baum Stadium lots via the blue route. Following the game, those in Baum East will use the red route while those in Baum West will be directed to the orange route. Please note, Razorback Road is not an option for post-game traffic from either of the Baum Stadium lots (East or West).
