Make Parking Plans for LSU Game

For fans who are coming to Oxford this weekend for the Ole Miss – LSU game and don’t already have a place to park on campus, this deal is for you. You can be steps away from Ole Miss by making plans to park at the office.

Parking at the office lot costs $100 per vehicle. All proceeds go towards providing scholarships for the Meek School of Journalism and New Media. The office is located at 307 West Jackson Avenue beside the All Care Clinic.

In a recent interview, Jimmy Allgood, Oxford’s Emergency and Game Day Operations Planner, talked about how the city plans to handle the shuttle busses and folks needing transportation to the game.

“We’ve done some tweaking to ensure shuttle busses have dedicated lanes so they don’t get backed up in a one-way traffic pattern on the trip back to the parking lots after the game,” Allgood said.

On Saturday, the shuttle busses will be picking people up from three different locations throughout the city: Oxford Activity Center, Oxford Conference Center, Oxford Middle School, McElroy drive near the post office, the former Whirlpool lot  and the old Oxford Mall (Malco Theatre Parking Lot).

Patrons who use the shuttle bus system for the game will be charged five dollars a person.
