Odessa High fans are asked to enter east bound on Yukon, traffic will be diverted to the main gate and also north bound on Tobosa to Charles Walker north gates.
After the Game, vehicles exiting the main gate will be diverted east and west on Yukon. Vehicles exiting out the east gates will be diverted southbound on Grandview. Vehicles exiting the north gates will be diverted east and west on Charles Walker Rd. Vehicles traveling south west on Tobosa will be diverted westbound on Yukon. Vehicles exiting eastbound on Charles Walker Rd. will be diverted northbound on Grandview.
Parents who are picking up their children after the game are asked to please wait until the flow of traffic exiting the stadium has decreased before entering the stadium. This will minimize traffic congestion and motorist frustration.
Motorists who are not going to the game are encourage to plan an alternate route to their destination and avoid roadways leading to the stadium. PHS fans are encouraged to approach the stadium from the eastside and OHS from the westside. This will reduce crossover traffic inside the stadium.
