EAST LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — If you’re heading to East Lansing Saturday for the MSU football game, you might want to get there early so you can find a place to park.

Michigan State University officials sent out a notice Friday stating Munn Field and the other intramural fields will not be available for parking on game day for the MSU vs. Rutgers game.

The change in parking is due in part because of the snowy weather from earlier in the week.

The school has made alternate public parking at the former Michigan State Police Headquarters site, which is adjacent to Harrison Road; directly west of the Breslin Arena.

Student parking Lot 83, which is on Service Road just east of Harrison Road, will also have space available for public use.

The student commuter lot at Farm Lane and Mt. Hope Road has ample capacity. Parking is free, but a round trip shuttle ticket will need to be purchased for $5.

Parking lots will open at 7:00 a.m. Saturday.

School officials are asking MSU fans to be patient with the police officers and parking staff, especially when they are leaving the game.
