The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is welcoming fans of country music star George Strait, who will perform at 7:30 p.m. Mar. 1, in Thompson-Boling Arena.
The sold-out concert will bring more than 20,000 guests to campus, affecting traffic and parking.
Special event parking is available after 4 p.m. in the G10 garage next to the arena, the Andy Holt Tower garage across the street, and many other faculty and staff lots on the main campus and just north across Cumberland Ave. in Fort Sanders.
To avoid traffic congestion in the heart of campus, concertgoers can park on the agriculture campus and ride a shuttle to the arena. Shuttle service will begin at 6:00 p.m. and continue until the show starts, and will resume at the end of the concert. The parking fee is $10 on campus and includes shuttle service to and from the agriculture campus.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
