Hurricane Police Officer Jayson Despain said, “At this point, there is only one access to the football field and that’s on State Street next to Ace Hardware. The public will need to park and walk to the games.”
Football fans are urged to park vehicles in the front and back parking lots of the high school and then walk along the sidewalk on State Street to the football stadium. It is not yet known when other access points to the football field will be available. Anyone trying to cut across construction zones could be cited for trespassing. Parking on the north side of State Street or other side streets will require pedestrians to use crosswalks.
Despain said, “We are encouraging the use of sidewalks and crosswalks for everyone’s safety, noting traffic is heavy on State Street and pedestrians should not attempt to cross the street without using a crosswalk.
Both the JV and Freshmen football teams are scheduled to play the Cedar City Redmen at Hurricane on August 25. While the Varsity football team kicks off the season with an away game at Skyline on August 19, the team’s first home game is September 2 against the Tooele Buffaloes.
Drivers are reminded to stay alert for pedestrians now that school is back in session and to be courteous to local business owners when parking for athletic events.
