Troubling Traffic for Columbia
The Missouri State Highway Patrol and MU police direct drivers to parking spots around Memorial Stadium. Officials expect Murray State fans to use Highway 63 and come in from the east, so they recommend local fans come in from the west. But, like any traffic plan, success depends on the drivers.
"People just need to be patient," said Sgt. Moriarty.
Columbia police say the worst congestion is at the intersections of I-70 and Highway 63 plus I-70 and Stadium Boulevard. On game days, the intersection of Stadium and Providence Road also is a problem spot.
