Friday night football game causing transit changes on- and off-Grounds
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The University of Virginia football team will be playing at home on Friday, which will cause traffic issues around Scott Stadium.
UVA will be playing Wake Forest at 7 p.m.
The University Transit Service says there will be some changes to its bus routes due to the game, including the Redline and Redline Express not being in service.
The Gold, Green, Orange and Silver lines will all be running between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
And the Blueline will be running its Friday Football special route between 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.
UVA says neither of the Safe Ride and DART services will be operating as usual.
There will also be some road closures two hours before kick-off and immediately after the game to allow traffic flow to be a smooth as possible.
These include Alderman Road from Ivy Road to Stadium Road, McCormick Road from Emmet Street to Hereford Drive, and Hereford Drive from Stadium Road to McCormick Road.
The Charlottesville Area Transit says its free trolley will also be impacted by the game, with a detour going into effect two hours before kick-off and lasting until service ends for the night.
The trolley will not be using Jefferson Park Avenue, Alderman Road and McCormick Road during the detour. Instead, it will use Emmet Street and University Avenue.
People who are not attending the game are encouraged to use alternate routes in order to avoid congestion on Emmet Street, Ivy Road, University Avenue and the area of Jefferson Park Avenue/Fontaine Avenue.
