From the north, Frisco St will only provide local traffic access down to Research Rd.  Northbound traffic will not be affected.  Those approaching Fieldhouse USA, the hotels on Sports Village Rd and Enterprise Dr, and other nearby facilities will need to approach on Main St from the east and then use northbound Frisco St (see attached map for Dec. 4 Before 10am)

Residents, employees and customers of Coleman Blvd who arrive before 10 a.m. can use northbound Dallas Pkwy, Frisco Square Blvd, and World Cup Way to access the parking on the west side of Coleman Blvd, or they can use westbound Main St and turn south on Frisco St to access the East Frisco Square Parking Lot. 

Race participants will park in the west parking lots of Toyota Stadium or in the parking garage behind the library. During the street closures, the parking at Toyota Stadium must be accessed from the northbound Dallas Pkwy frontage road. Drivers on Dallas Pkwy should turn right at the first driveway north of Main St or turn right onto Technology Dr.  The library parking garage must be accessed from Page St, which can be reached from northbound Dallas Pkwy or from John W. Elliott Dr (see attached map for Dec. 4 Before 10am).
