Traffic and Parking Information for Ariana Grande on October 6; Early Arrivals Encouraged
Due to the large crowd expected for the Ariana Grande concert at INTRUST Bank Arena on Oct. 6, and the security checks performed at each entrance, fans are highly encouraged to arrive early and leave ample time for driving and parking downtown. Doors for the concert will open at 6:30 p.m. with the concert starting at 7:30 p.m.
The eastbound exit ramp to Wichita’s Central Business District is closed due to bridge repair along a stretch of eastbound Kellogg from Seneca to Washington. Fans using eastbound Kellogg to attend the concert are encouraged to use the Seneca or Washington Street exits. From either exit, drivers can follow way-finding signage to INTRUST Bank Arena and the coinciding City parking lots A, B, C, and D. The Kansas Department of Transportation has digital signage in place on Kellogg east bound to notify drivers of the detours and closure of the Central Business District exit.
In addition to the downtown City parking lots, parking is also available at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium located at 300 S. Sycamore Street. Free trolleys will offer transportation between the stadium and the arena. Fans are also encouraged to utilize the Coleman Parking Lot at the intersection of Second Street and St. Francis, just north of INTRUST Bank Arena. For additional information on where to park, visit www.parkdowntown.org.
Lastly, the designated areas to drop-off and pick-up guests will be the east lane of Emporia Street or the Arena’s circle drive off Waterman Street.
