[ARCHIVED] Traffic Advisory: PGA Tournament Wednesday-Sunday, May 24-28 (Lane closures start night of May 21)

(May 18, 2023) The KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship Tournament will be held at PGA Frisco Wednesday through Sunday, May 24-28 (and could extend into Monday, May 29, if delayed by weather). Traffic patterns near PGA Frisco will be altered starting Sunday night, May 21, and includes a traffic shift on PGA Pkwy. between Championship Dr. and Legacy Dr.  During the tournament, expect increased traffic around Toyota Stadium where most attendees will park and be shuttled to the event. Expect delays on PGA Pkwy. near the event due to lane closures and credentials checks. Local traffic should avoid traveling eastbound on PGA Pkwy. between Championship Dr. and Legacy Dr. between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on tournament days. 

Find specific details in the maps linked below.  

Event Parking (May 24-28)

  • Players, officials, vendors, and others with VIP parking credentials have been given instructions to park in various lots located on and around PGA Frisco.  
  • All other attendees must park in the Red Lot on the west side of Toyota Stadium and ride shuttle buses  to the PGA Tournament.  No general parking is provided near PGA Frisco and no event parking is allowed in any neighborhood.  As shown in the Parking Map, the entrance to the general parking is located on the north end of the Red Lot on Technology Drive.  Drivers from the north can use Frisco St. to approach the entrance, drivers from the south can use the northbound Dallas Pkwy. frontage road, and those approaching on Main St. can go north on World Cup Way.  Shuttle buses will start operating on Wednesday, May 24, at 6:45 a.m. 
  • For parking information, and to pre-purchase general parking at a discount, click here to visit the PGA website.  After purchasing general parking, those with ADA permits can park in Lot C located at Lone Star High School where ADA shuttle buses will be provided. 
  • All rideshare activity will drop-off and pick-up in Lot V located at Panther Creek High School next to PGA Frisco.  Those leaving the event must walk to Lot V before requesting a ride. 

Lane Closures/Traffic Switch (May 21-28) 

  • The south half of PGA Pkwy. will be closed during the tournament to accommodate shuttle bus and other tournament activity.  The lanes will close Sunday night, May 21, at 9 p.m. and will remain closed for a week.  They are expected to open Sunday night, May 28 (unless the tournament is extended into Monday due to weather).  
  • During this partial road closure, eastbound PGA Pkwy. will be reduced to one lane as it approaches Championship Dr. on the west side of PGA Frisco.  After crossing through the traffic signal, eastbound traffic will be switched to the north half of the road.  Eastbound and westbound traffic will share the north half of the road, separated by cones.  Eastbound traffic will switch back to the south half the road before reaching the traffic signal at Legacy Dr. (see Lane Closure Map).  
  • Access to the Omni Hotel will be limited to its eastern driveway on PGA Pkwy. 
  • Beginning Wednesday, May 24, the single lane of traffic on eastbound PGA Pkwy. will be used by all shuttle buses and other credentialed event vehicles to enter the cordoned area.  
  • Regular traffic and credentialed traffic will be split by officers just east of the Championship Dr. traffic signal.  Regular/local traffic should expect delays in the eastbound direction between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. each tournament day (May 24-28) and is advised to use an alternate eastbound route such as University Dr. (US 380) or Panther Creek Pkwy. 
  • Due to parking activity, local drivers should also avoid the intersection of Main St. and Dallas Pkwy. during the mornings of each tournament day. 

 Local drivers are urged to seek an alternate route in advance.  Visitors and residents can use the Waze app to navigate in and out of the Toyota Stadium and PGA Frisco areas.  The app will provide navigation assistance based on real-time road closure and traffic flow information.
