Bob Hayes Lane will be closed so those arriving at the COVID-19 testing site need to use a different entrance.
Traffic at Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) Bragg Memorial Stadium will look a bit different beginning on Monday, March 1.
Due to construction and renovating of the football stadium, traffic entering and exiting Bob Hayes Lane will be diverted.
Bragg Memorial Stadium has been the COVID-19 testing site, which has allowed more than 250,000 to be tested for the virus. Construction to the east side of the stadium will include the visitor’s seating being demolished, repaired and replaced.
The COVID-19 testing site is currently located on the west side of the stadium and will remain open. However, traffic will need to enter from Wahnish Way to Okaloosa Street, utilizing the southwest gate.
FAMU opened its walk-up COVID-19 vaccination site on Thursday for those 65 and over and health care workers at the Alfred Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center Teaching Gymnasium. To enter the vaccination site, visitors are asked to use the southwest gate on Okaloosa Street.
“In spite of the major work that is planned to renovate Bragg Memorial Stadium, our professional staff and construction managers were able to come up with a parking plan that allows for limited parking for athletics behind the field house, the COVID-19 testing site on the north end, the COVID-19 vaccination site behind and just north of the Lawson Center and for ARMY ROTC behind their building,” said Tanya Tatum, director of FAMU Student Health Services.
