Use the following directions to reach Lambeau Field on gameday.
Highway Construction In Progress around Green Bay:
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region reminds motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday, September 25, for the Green Bay Packer/Detroit Lions football game that I-41 and adjacent roadways from Oneida Street north to Lineville Road in Brown County are under construction.
Sunday’s game may have a significant impact on traffic operations. WisDOT encourages those traveling to the game to pre-plan their trip. Other tips include using alternate routes, adjusting your leave to ensure you reach the destination on time, and following the traveler information on the message boards.
I-41, WIS 172 and I-43 could experience significant backups near the stadium, as could the I-41 interchanges at Oneida Street, WIS 172 and I-43. Barrier walls, orange barrels, and narrow lanes will affect travel. Due to the I-41 Project construction, Ashland Avenue through De Pere and Ashwaubenon will also experience increased traffic congestion as additional motorists use this as an alternate route. The heaviest congestion is expected three hours before and after the game
Here is a list of the major highways in northeast Wisconsin most Packer fans will be traveling as they head for Lambeau Field, and the road conditions they should anticipate.
I-41/Velp Avenue interchange
WIS 172 and I-41/WIS 172 Interchange
WIS 441, US 10 and Roland Kampo Bridge
US 41, Oconto County
US 141, Marinette County
Freeway Service Team
The I-41 Project Freeway Service Teams will be working in Brown County on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Freeway Service Team will assist motorists - free of charge - who are involved in minor crashes or are experiencing a breakdown. If necessary, the Freeway Service Team quickly relocates disabled vehicles from the highway’s travel lanes and/or shoulders to safe, pre-designated locations away from traffic.
Services the team provides include:
Please note if you are involved in a crash:
The WisDOT’s Division of State Patrol advises you to immediately call 911 if you are involved in a crash. If there are no injuries and the vehicles can be moved, report the other vehicle’s license plate numbers as you may then be advised to move off the main portion of the roadway to a crash investigation site or to a ramp out of traffic. This will assist first responders in reaching you while helping to clear traffic delays during the critical travel times before and following the game.
Additionally, if your vehicle becomes disabled in the I-41 work zone between De Pere and Suamico, notify authorities immediately, and WisDOT will send the Freeway Service Team vehicle to your location. Motorists can then contact their motor club or towing preference after WisDOT has relocated your vehicle to a more accessible and safe location.
Travelers should allow extra time and can check online for real-time traffic information, including travel times, lane closures and incidents, at 511 Wisconsin online at www.511wi.gov or by calling 511.
A northbound lane of Ridge Road (on the stadium's west side) is blockaded on gameday to provide a safe and convenient passenger drop off area. To access the drop off zone, vehicles must be traveling north on Ridge Road and merge with northbound traffic upon exiting. Please respect any posted time limitations and heed the instructions from officers directing traffic flow in and out of the area.
As this area will be very congested in the immediate hour(s) after the game, it will not be designated as a post-game pick up zone. Drivers should arrange to meet their passengers at an alternate location after the game.
The Green Bay Packers are committed to providing an enjoyable and safe game experience. Irresponsible conduct will not be tolerated at Lambeau Field or in its parking lots and, in some cases, may result in arrest and/or ejection from the game. The following will not be tolerated:
Repeat violations of the above policy may result in the permanent revocation of season tickets, regardless of whether or not the spectators or violators using the tickets are the season ticket holders of record.
The fan code of conduct has been enhanced with an option for fans to use their mobile phones to alert security via text message to behavior that detracts from a positive gameday experience. The numbers will be visible throughout the stadium, including on signage in the stadium bowl and at all concession stands. Announcements also will be made in-stadium.
Speak up and win! After you attend a Packers game, tell us about your experience. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and be entered to win Packers autographed prizes.
Displays are located along the Fan Walkway, across from the Tundra Tailgate Zone.
All displays and activities are subject to change.
There will not be a flyover at Thursday’s game.
Vendors will stop serving in the stands/aisles inside the stadium at the end of the third quarter but most concession stands are open and will serve food until the end of the game. Alcohol cannot be brought into or out of the stadium. The sale of beer is limited to two per customer, per purchase, with all sales ceasing at the end of the third quarter.
Fans with seats in the South End (i.e. section numbers ending with the letter “s”) must enter through the Shopko Gate on the south side of the stadium, which is for the exclusive use of South End ticket holders. Fans sitting elsewhere in the stadium are encouraged to use the gate suggested on their ticket for the most direct route to their seats. For fans entering on the east side of the stadium, the new American Family Insurance Gate is a great option. It’s located just to the north (or right) of the Oneida Nation Gate.

Verizon HopeLine Collection
At the October 20th game vs. the Bears, representatives from Verizon Wireless will be outside all stadium gates collecting no-longer-used wireless devices to support the HopeLine Program.
Wireless phones given to HopeLine are refurbished and resold with proceeds generated given to non-profit domestic violence prevention organizations, including those in Wisconsin. New phones – complete with 3,000 minutes of wireless service and text-messaging service – are provided to local domestic violence agencies or local government and law enforcement agencies for use with their domestic violence clients.
The Packers will wear their color-rush uniforms for their matchup against the Bears on Oct. 20 at Lambeau Field, and they will be all white.
The jersey is the Packers’ regular road jersey with new white pants to go with it. The color-rush uniform will be worn only for the one game this season.
The last time the Packers wore their traditional white jersey for a game at Lambeau Field is believed to be on Sept. 17, 1989, for a game against New Orleans. Green Bay wore its regular gold pants that day.
