Oxford Police Department Announces Ole Miss vs. Arkansas Game Day Plans
The Oxford Police Department along with the City of Oxford is looking forward to hosting the first home game of the season this weekend. Included are some helpful information about game-day traffic plans.
The Double Decker busses will run starting at 3:30 pm at no cost from The Square to campus and back before the game, during the game and for two hours after the game ends. Fans may park at FNC Park on Old Sardis Road, the South Oxford Center (old Baptist Hospital) and the Jackson Avenue Center for free shuttle parking and transportation to campus. All shuttles will begin at 7:00 am. This service will end one hour after game time. Please see olemissgameday.com for pick up locations.
Visitors can purchase a single game reserved parking pass on the fly this year with the CLUTCH! app. The app is available on iOS and Android devices.
City taxi pick up and drop off will be at the intersection of Old Taylor Road and University Avenue. No other locations on the city streets are for pick up and drop off. If traffic is disrupted a ticket will be issued.
Backpacks and track bags are not allowed on shuttles or in the stadium. Ole Miss is still implementing the clear bag policy. Oxford Police want to remind everyone to put valuables in the trunk and lock your cars.
After the game: be cautious of police officers directing traffic in the road at the intersection of Jackson Ave and Highway 278. Hathorn Road will not be able to exit at Chucky Mullins; you must go to West Jackson Avenue. Old Taylor Road traffic must take Belk Blvd. to South Lamar.
Please watch for officers in roadways and pedestrians exiting the game. Fixed routes will continue until traffic is flowing freely. We also want everyone to make it home safely so please do not drive if you have been drinking.
