Friday, April 4 will be a busy day in downtown Cleveland as the Cleveland Indians once again take the field. The City of Cleveland expects heavy traffic, more pedestrians and more visitors for the Home Opener against the Minnesota Twins. As always, the City encourages the use of public transportation and car pooling to ease traffic congestion and recommends that people allow for extra travel time.
- Parking at Gateway East Garage: The special event rate will be in effect and as such, monthly and daily customers will not have regular access. Monthly parking customers will be able to show their monthly pass at the East Entrance of the Lakefront Municipal Parking Lot (1500 S. Marginal) to access all day parking free of charge. RTA provides bus service from the west end of Muni Lot to Public Square.
- Parking will be restricted on the south-side of Prospect Avenue from Ontario Street to E.23rd Street; on the south-side of Huron from Ontario Street to Prospect Avenue; on either side of E 9th Street from Chester Avenue to Ontario Street; and on Erie Ct. and Sumner Ct. for bus parking. Signs will be posted indicating these restrictions.
- The City of Cleveland Traffic Bureau will have traffic controllers in place at key intersections to help improve traffic flow.
- RTA is increasing rail service to accommodate additional passengers for the Home Opener.
