Tailgating

Sooner fans fill the stores, restaurants and sidewalks of Campus Corner before an OU game.

The Norman Police Department will make routine evening road closures in the Campus Corner area from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays when the University of Oklahoma is in session. The closures start this week.

The police department tested the program last spring. The alterations will include the closure of the 700 block of Asp Avenue. Patrons parked along Asp Avenue at the time of the closure will be able to exit the area northbound. This plan will not impact any home football game day operations or closures.

All ride share drivers should use the city parking lot at 710 Asp Ave. for staging and White Street for pickups and drop-offs.

The new traffic plan was created in partnership with Campus Corner Merchants and the City of Norman.
