CENTRE COUNTY — Penn State announced Monday that a majority of its grass lots on campus will be closed for Saturday afternoon’s Big Ten matchup with Wisconsin.

The decision comes after heavy rainfall which caused damage to drive aisles and the grass parking lots.

“For the safety of fans, to prevent further damage to intramural fields and Ag fields, as well as fans’ personal vehicles, the majority of the grass parking lots will be unavailable for Saturday’s noon contest with Wisconsin,” the athletic department said in a press release.

The ORV, Pink lots and a portion of the reserved Stadium North (Green) lot are the only grass lots that will be available for the Wisconsin game.

Starting at 8 a.m. Saturday until 60 minutes after the conclusion of the game, six free shuttle routes — in addition to CATA and Lot Red A — will be available from off-campus lots to Beaver Stadium. A color and route number have been established for each shuttle route and fans will receive a wristband that corresponds with their shuttle, the release said.

“Fans who normally park a car or RV in paved lots will be unaffected. Permit holders with a white stripe through their permit have a paved parking space, which are not impacted by this Saturday’s lot closures.

“No Gameday (Yellow) Parking Available on Campus; Fans should park downtown or at Grange Park, the release continued. “Fans who have a gameday (Yellow) parking permit will not be permitted to park in the lots near Beaver Stadium or in any campus parking lots and are asked to park in one of the lots outlined below. Fans who still need gameday parking should park in a downtown parking lot/deck or park at Grange Park and take a shuttle.”
