Large crowds are expected to jam the downtown area and take part in Sunday's festivities.
The increased inbound and outbound vehicular traffic could potentially result in traffic delays.
In an effort to prevent unnecessary inconvenience to motorists, and to ensure an enjoyable experience downtown, the Cleveland Division of Police are offering the following tips:
Arrive downtown early
Utilize public transportation such as buses and the rapid transit system
If driving is necessary or desirable plan a travel route into and out of the city and have a secondary route in mind
Familiarize yourself with downtown parking garages and surface lots - understand that the lots nearest the ballpark generally fill up first
Abide by parking prohibitions (street parking is illegal on streets adjacent to Jacob's Field before, during and immediately after each game)
Be aware of increased pedestrian traffic particularly around Progressive Field and First Energy Stadium
Put Your Junk in Your Trunk (Don't leave items in plain view)
The Bureau of Traffic will supplement their customary allotment of traffic enforcement officers with additional police officers and traffic controllers to facilitate traffic into and out of downtown and to assist with pedestrian traffic.
In addition, numerous officers will be detailed to the area during the event for added security and crowd control.
