The 43,000 people expected to go to the Pirate Football Game Saturday in Greenville not only face traffic congestion, there could be confusion about changes to where to park.
Construction is taking place at some of the athletic facilities at East Carolina University, including the softball field off Charles Blvd. near the intersection with Greenville Blvd.
East Carolina University is urging everyone without a reserved parking pass to use the remote parking lots at the Brody School of Medicine, near Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Climate-controlled buses will take fans to and from the stadium for $5, round trip. Parking there is free.
The parking lots open at 8 a.m. Saturday for tailgating.
