News release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Mayor announces easier in, out parking at Harrison Square Garage on game days
Improvements Ready for TinCaps’ Season Opener
(April 6, 2011) – Beginning today
tomorrow, Opening Day, visitors to the TinCaps games who park in the Harrison Square Parking Garage, adjacent to Parkview Field, will have a new and easier way in and out of the garage.
The changes will allow traffic to flow better at the garage located at the corner of Douglas and Harrison.
“Here’s a TinCaps’ Opening Day heads-up on parking changes at the Harrison Square Parking Garage guaranteed to make game-day arrivals and departures even easier,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “To smooth traffic flow, parking-garage entries are now on Harrison Street only. Exits can be made on to either Harrison or Douglas streets.”
TinCaps’ Game Parking Improvements:
[li]Before the game, entry to the Harrison Square Parking Garage will only be at the Harrison Street gates. Vehicles will not be able to enter from Douglas Street. This change will alleviate inbound congestion on the first floor of the garage.[/li]
[li]If drivers attempt to enter the garage from Douglas Street, attendants at the Douglas Street gates will direct them down Webster to surface lots south of Brackenridge.[/li]
[li]After the game, cars may exit the garage from either the Harrison Street or Douglas Street gates.[/li]
The new system – enter on Harrison Street, exit on either Douglas or Harrison streets – will smooth traffic before and after the games.
The parking modifications are a collaborative effort of the TinCaps, Downtown Improvement District and the City of Fort Wayne, working together to make downtown Fort Wayne the destination for good times.
There are still tickets available for tonight’s Opening Day game with the South Bend Silverhawks. Â Visit the TinCaps website.
