||Parking & Traffic
It has been very clear by the feedback of the Auburn Family that additional parking that is free and close to the stadium ranks high on the wish list. The plan for 2013 creates more than 2,000 new free parking and tailgating spots around campus.

Here are some of the highlights:
South Donahue Corridor: The temporary stakes that line both sides of Donahue during the fall will be moved or eliminated. The stakes on the western side of the street will be removed to allow fans to park on the curb. The stakes on the eastern side of the street will remain but will be pushed farther away from the curb to protect the pedestrian path while also creating ample space for additional parking. A new lot previously not available to fans will also be opened on the north end of the South Donahue hayfields, adjacent to Lem Morrison Drive. Additional parking will also be opened up on Lem Morrison as a construction laydown area is converted to parking and tailgating space. (Available at 4 p.m. on Friday).
West Samford Avenue: A small area of green space on West Samford Avenue near the intersection of Duncan Drive will also be opened up for free parking and tailgating. Permanent pipe and chain barriers along that portion of West Samford will be removed. (Available at 4 p.m. on Friday).
Intramural Fields: Thanks to the cooperation of the Division of Student Affairs, 70 new tailgating spots will also be offered on the perimeter of the Intramural Fields on Biggio Drive. The reserved spots will be offered free of charge. Beginning in August, fans will be able to reserve those spots online at AUBGameday.com.
Facilities Division: Additional free parking will be available at the Facilities Division off of West Samford Avenue. Fans can "quick park" their vehicles there, and shuttle service will be available to and from the stadium.
Removal of Bollards: Portions of the permanent pipe and chain barriers along Wire Road in front of the Carol Draughon Village (CDV) complex will be removed prior to football season, opening up the area for free parking and tailgating. Bollards will also be removed on Biggio Drive near the Intramural Fields. Vehicles will be allowed to pull up on the grass and fans can tailgate there free of charge. (Available at 4 p.m. Friday).
Thanks to the cooperation of Dean James P. Shepard and the School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences, a new free tailgating area will be opened up behind the Forestry & Wildlife building at the corner of South Donahue and Lem Morrison Drive. The School of Forestry has partially cleared a wooded area there for a longleaf pine tree reforestation project. "Weagle Woods" will offer tailgaters a prime location among the pine trees just a short walk from Jordan-Hare Stadium.
No parking is allowed on the roadway, bike paths, and sidewalks. For pedestrian safety, the Mell Street corridor, bound by the intersections of Thach and College, Mell and Samford, and Miller and College will close to all vehicular traffic approximately two to four hours prior to kickoff.

Guests parking south of Roosevelt Drive will be required to park facing south and guests parking north of Roosevelt Drive will be required to park facing north.
