Use the following directions to reach Lambeau Field on gameday.
Highway Construction In Progress around Green Bay:
(Green Bay) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region Office is reminding motorists heading to Lambeau Field on Sunday, January 3 for the Green Bay Packer/Minnesota Viking football game that I-41 and adjacent roadways from Oneida Street north to Lineville Road in Brown County are under construction. The game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.
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 roads in northeast Wisconsin most Packer fans will be traveling as they head for Lambeau Field, and the road conditions they should anticipate.
I-43 and I-43/I-41 interchange
WIS 172 and I-41/WIS 172 Interchange
Motorists should expect heavy congestion and potential long delays at the I-41/WIS 172 interchange and on WIS 172 in Brown County from I-43 to the WIS 172/I-41 interchange before and after the game. Motorists should consider using alternate routes if possible.
Barrier wall, narrow lanes, short merge distances and orange barrels will be present at various locations.
WIS 441/US 10 and Roland Kampo Bridge
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.
