GREEN BAY - With the south end zone renovations finished, Lambeau Field could set a preseason attendance record tonight. So how does that affect parking?
Most fans say they have a parking plan before they head to the stadium neighborhood.
But the stadium expansion did change those plans for some fans this year.
With an expanded Oneida Gate and other stadium construction moving forward, 100 customer parking stalls were lost in the Lambeau Field parking lot.
The Packers asked the parking pass holders with the least seniority to move to the K-Mart parking lot, west of the stadium. Those pass holders are paying half price.
The Packers have had to move staff parking in the past, but they say this is the first year they asked customers to move.
Some are okay with the move, while it has some other non-pass holders looking for new parking spots.
“I think this is just wonderful. I'm not unhappy a bit. I like this better than the other side actually,” said Floyd Miller of Appleton.
“It's a very uneasy situation. We didn't even know this lot was going to be available until Wednesday of this week,” said Mike Wagner of Fond du Lac.
With the stadium expanded, each game will see 7,000 more people this season. That means more need for parking.
Does that have Lambeau neighbors charging more to park cars in their yard?
FOX 11’s Ben Krumholz will have that part of the story tonight on FOX 11 News at Nine.
An armed robbery suspect sustained life-threatening injuries after being shot in Fond du Lac County.
First responders helped ring in the holidays at the 45th annual Howard-Suamico Christmas Parade.
Christmas is just two and half weeks away, and kids and families are getting into the holiday spirit.
Single digit temps around the area caused problems in the Fox Valley Saturday morning.
The frigid temperatures forced some area communities to cancel their weekend Christmas celebrations. But New London braved the cold for its annual Holiday of Wonder Parade.
Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's all of the injuries, but many Packers fans are saying "no thanks," to this weekend's Packers game.
