Traffic horrible near Stadium

If u r driving in, be aware the traffic is jammed and the golf course closed. Pioneer filling up quickly.

From Plymouth road, and take side streets through the medical campus. Not sure any near lawns will have anything by 4. Might try the neighborhoods north or east of campus, and walk through campus. South, Northbrook off Saline south of Busch's but north of Eisenhower is just off 94, but a 25 minute walk...and if the Church parking is already filling up, it'll hit the next side street, then the open lots, and fade back onto there after that. Pretty sure west will fill up fast, and you're coming from the other way.
<br>I don't think you're going to have a short walk.

You could have done it.  Livonia to Ann Arbor is around 25 miles.  Average walking speed for an adult male is 3.5 MPH, but assuming you are a relatively fit person, you could increase that to 4 MPH.  Thus, if you left at 1:30pm you would have made it in time. 

All that said, I get excited every time I find a close parking spot and save walking another 50 feet.

The last few times I've gone to a game I've parked within a four-block radius of Main and Huron. It obviously doesn't work if you want to tailgate, but if you just want to park it's great. Cheap, easy, and a pleasant walk down Main to the stadium.

The late opening of some lots, the rain, no parking at the golf course have people unsure of what they are doing or where they should go.  I just encountered some moron trying to head the wrong way down a one way street in a neighborhood off Stadium as I was taking my son to practice.

Industrial is flowing well and there are still a few parking spaces in the lot at Cubs/Benny's and that series of construction places across the street.  $30 close to Stadium, down to $10 closer to Eisenhower.
