On July 4, 2016, the fireworks display and activities will be held in the area surrounding Beaver Stadium. The fireworks display is scheduled to start at approximately 9:20 PM.
For inbound traffic, Porter Road and Orchard Road will be closed from approximately 8:00 pm until the end of the fireworks. Motorists will not be permitted to park along the streets near the stadium, along the Mt. Nittany Expressway, Route 220 (I-99) or Orchard Road. Parking restrictions will be enforced and violators will be ticketed and/or towed.
At approximately 9:40 PM the following traffic pattern will be put into effect until the outbound traffic has cleared:
- Park Avenue will be one-way westbound from Fox Hollow Road to North Atherton Street
- Park Avenue will be one-way eastbound from Fox Hollow Road to Orchard Road
- Porter Road will be one-way southbound from Beaver Stadium to East College Avenue
Motorists should expect delays during outbound traffic because traffic volume is expected to be equivalent to that of a Penn State home football game. Officer K. J. Winkelblech #3214
