Inbound and Outbound Traffic Plan

Duke and Durham police have developed inbound and outbound traffic plans to get people to and from available parking as quickly as possible. Officers will be positioned at access points to facilitate an efficient traffic flow. DOT message boards along the Durham Freeway, Hwy 15/501, and I-85 will provide suggested routes to campus based on up-to-the-minute traffic conditions.  Additional information can be found on Duke Athletics' game day site.
