Graduation Traffic and Parking Information

Incoming Graduation Traffic

Fouts Field (Lot #20) and other close lots (#26) will be the main parking area for high school graduations. The majority of the traffic will be coming through the North Texas Blvd. (NTB) exit. These lots will get full and there will be a large amount of traffic congestion at the NTB exit of I-35 and the intersections close to the lot and the coliseum. We encourage everyone to take the alternative routes listed below both into and out of campus utilizing parking in the remote lots to lessen waiting times and traffic congestion.

Alternatives to avoid traffic congestion @NTB

I-35E (from Lewisville, Carrollton, Dallas)

Exiting Graduation Traffic

Once your graduation ceremony is over and you are leaving the campus, as indicated on the map to avoid congestion at and on NTB, we encourage everyone to travel east utilizing W. Hickory St., Highland St., and Eagle Dr. all of which connect to Carroll Blvd. which runs south (Right) back to I-35 and north (left) back to Hwy. 380 (University Dr.). Another alternative for those wanting to travel south on I-35E towards Lewisville is to continue eastbound on Eagle Dr. and take a right on Dallas Dr. which becomes/feeds I-35E.
