Largest parking area may be unavailable for UA-Arkansas game

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - The University of Alabama is reporting that parking may be extremely limited for this Saturday's game against the University of Arkansas.

Officials at UA sent out a press release on Wednesday morning saying that the grassy area between the soccer lot and University Boulevard is could possibly be unavailable for parking before the game. This area usually holds around 1,000 vehicles, but recent heavy rains have caused the ground to become soft and unable to hold the weight the vehicles.

If there is not a significant drying out by Saturday morning, UA will be forced to close off the area.

The University plans to open a different grass lot near the Capstone Village Retirement Center on 5th Avenue. The cost for this lot will be ten dollars per vehicle. Riding the Crimson Ride bus service to the quad will be free.
