Traffic tips for a smoother Bon Jovi concert
Police and promoters are offering a few traffic tips for Bon Jovi fans to make arrival at the Fargodome as smooth as possible:
-- Northbound and Southbound I-29 follow interstate message boards for off ramps to take. These message boards will rotate between off ramps to ease traffic congestion.
-- In town traffic use 10th Street North to either 17th or 19th Avenue North.
-- Eastbound 12th Avenue traffic to 18th Street North
-- Westbound 12th Avenue traffic to 10th Street North
-- Additional parking available and recommended at Fargo North High School and John E. Carlson Coliseum located on 17th Avenue.
-- All buses will be directed to off load on the west side of the Fargodome using Albrecht Avenue. If you are planning on bringing a bus to the facility we ask that you contact the Fargodome and ask to speak with Bernie Larson.
-- Please be aware with over 23,000 guests expected in the vicinity of the Fargodome that there will be a high volume of pedestrian traffic crossing streets leading to the facility.
-- There is no tailgating permitted at the Fargodome prior to the concert.
Fargodome parking lots will open at 3:30 p.m. with the public doors opening for the concert at 5:30 p.m. We anticipate the Fargodome lots to be at capacity well before the concert begins in which time we will direct guests to auxiliary lots in the area. We strongly encourage guests to arrive early using the recommended routes.
The Fargodome, in cooperation with the North Dakota State Patrol, Fargo Police Department and EVAC will be controlling all major intersections during the ingress and egress for the evening and appreciate your cooperation with following recommended routes into the area.
