13,000 people are expected to attend the scrimmage at ASU’s Camp Tontozona, and in an effort to ease traffic back-ups, DPS will close both east-bound lanes from the Kohl’s ranch exit for approximately 10 miles. East bound traffic will be diverted to the west bound lane, and two way traffic will be slowed to 35 MPH in that area. Heavy pedestrian traffic is expected as well as vehicles towing trailers and toy haulers, motorhomes, motorcycles and horse trailers. ASU is providing staff to direct parking and other traffic issues and electronic signs will be placed along the route with road information. (Traffic barricades will be placed starting at 3:00 Saturday morning and removed around 10:00 Saturday night.)
Our advice? Breathe deep, stay calm, go slow and above all, please be patient!
