Jackson Police Encourage JSU Football Fans to Take Precautions to Avoid 

Traffic Jams Ahead of Home Football Games 

(Jackson, MS) -- The Jackson Police Department is encouraging Jackson State 

University football fans to take special precautions to avoid the additional traffic 

jams anticipated due to construction near the Mississippi Veterans Memorial 

Stadium.

     JPD Commander Duane Odom said fans should try to avoid the peak times for 

football traffic whenever possible because of ongoing construction on West Street.

Fans should plan to arrive at the stadium at least an hour ahead of time to avoid 

peak traffic times. It is traditionally heaviest, he said, an hour before kickoff until at 

least the first 40 minutes of the game. Saturday's game starts at 5 p.m.

       "We are going to do the best we can to keep things going," Odom said.

Jackson State University officials also cautioned fans that they will not be allowed to 

park at the Farmer's Market located near the stadium so they should be prepared to 

park in the stadium's allotted parking.

To alleviate parking and traffic woes for fans, JSU and JATRAN have partnered 

on a Park-and-Ride Service for all JSU home football games. For a $3 pass, fans 

can park their vehicles at the nearby Jackson Medical Mall and ride the JATRAN 

shuttles directly to the front entrance of the football stadium. Fans also will be 

transported back to their vehicles following the game. Odom said JATRAN officials

have arranged for a police escort to ensure swift entry and exit through the

anticipated traffic.
