The Green Bay Packers are reminding fans heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday evening to be cautious and plan ahead while traveling.
Due to construction on US 41 and WIS 172, fans should expect delays and heavy congestion, especially at the US 41 and WIS 172 interchange, and are encouraged to utilize alternate routes if possible. Drivers will encounter 11-foot travel lanes and reduced shoulders in multiple locations along a 10-mile segment of US 41. The speed limit is reduced to 55 mph in many areas.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation strongly* *recommends motorists allow themselves additional time to reach their destinations and check WisDOT's 511 website, www.511wi.gov. Additionally, motorists are advised to remain alert and plan on exercising patience as they drive through the Green Bay area.
Fans who enter the stadium from the east should also be aware that the American Family Insurance Gate is closed temporarily due to final stages of construction. Attendees who ordinarily enter at the American Family Insurance Gate should enter at the Miller Lite Gate or the Oneida Nation Gate to reach their seats.
Additionally, fans are invited to bring their no-longer-used cell phones and accessories to the game to donate as a part of Verizon's HopeLine® program, which collects no-longer-used cell phones and distributes them to survivors of domestic violence. Volunteers will be accepting donated phones and equipment at each Lambeau Field entrance from 5:30 p.m. until game time at 7:30. All phones collected will provide direct support for survivors of domestic violence in Wisconsin.
