Expect traffic congestion, delays near UWL during state track meet

Expect traffic congestion during the WIAA State High School Track & Field meet that runs Friday and Saturday, June 1 and 2, at UW-La Crosse. Look for extensive delays and congestion on La Crosse Street and Highway 16 from I-90 to the university. Take alternative routes if possible.

“Take your time and be patient,” advises UWL Police Chief Scott McCollough. “Don’t get angry, watch for pedestrians and stay off of your phone.”

There will be three entry points for vehicles to campus: East Avenue at La Crosse Street, Pine Street at Campbell Road, and the La Crosse Street entrance to the Recreational Eagle Center. All other streets and alleys to campus will be blocked.

High school athletes and coaches will start arriving around 3 p.m. Thursday, May 31. Traffic direction and control around campus will start at 6 a.m. Friday and Saturday. MTU buses will not run through campus.

Parking on campus is $8 per day. There is no additional charge for university employees with paid parking permits.
