* Event parking will debut at $5 -- whether in parking garages or arena surface lots.
* Planners say all arena-related parking spots should be within six blocks of the venue.
* Arena parking ramps will be operated as other city ramps -- first hour free, $1 an hour after that -- when there are no events at the arena.
If you’re parking in Event Parking lot: Take West O Street or Cornhusker Highway to Sun Valley Boulevard, then Line Drive into parking lot. Tip: Even if you live in east Lincoln, go west on Van Dorn or Rosa Parks Way and double-back on West O. You’ll avoid meeting and crossing other arena traffic.
If you’re leaving Event Parking lot: Expect police to direct traffic at Sun Valley Boulevard and Line Drive.
If you’re parking in arena garages: During events at the arena, you must enter from north or south on Pinnacle Arena Drive (via Salt Creek Roadway north, N Street south). Q and R streets will be closed between Seventh and Canopy streets.
If you’re leaving arena garages: Northbound traffic will take Salt Creek Roadway to Big X; southbound traffic will take N Street to Ninth Street.
