Officials Encourage Public Transit During JUCO
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- A project underway that will add about 110 new parking spots unfortunately wont be ready in time for this year's Junior College World Series.
However, officials have figured out another way to alleviate parking problems.
The JUCO Committee and the City of Grand Junction have been working on finding alternative sources of getting people to the stadium for the big game.
This year, officials are encouraging people to take public transportation to and from the stadium rather than flooding the area with cars.
“People have access points either on the CMU campus or all throughout Horizon Drive,” said Rob Schoeber, director of parks and recreation for the City of Grand Junction. “The easiest way is to jump on up at Horizon Drive, park up there, and then come into Lincoln Park. Not only does it get you here on time for the game but it probably gets you out of the park faster.”
Currently, there are only a total of 400 parking spots on the park property but again, their new construction plan will add an additional 110 spots.
Crews are expected to start the renovation of the parking lot right after JUCO, which is scheduled to start this Saturday.
