CS, A&M work to reduce gameday traffic congestion

Game Day Traffic

By Troy Rother, City Traffic Engineer

As much as we all love Aggie football, there’s one thing we dread when football season arrives – the increased traffic around Kyle Field.

In the early 1990s, the city worked closely with Texas A&M to develop a plan to move traffic in and out of the area after football games. The plan has worked well, but the rapid growth of the city and the university – not to mention all the new visitors from the Southeastern Conference – means it must be updated.

After last season’s Alabama game, we collaborated with the university to collect postgame traffic data all over the region to develop better methods of moving traffic. We also partnered with the Texas A&M University System and other local agencies, such as the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, to find ways to not only move traffic more efficiently after games, but to also assist fans arriving in town before games.
