Wildcat fans traveling to Bill Snyder Family Stadium this football season should be prepared for traffic issues.

Traffic:

  • Reconstruction of Kimball Avenue between Candlewood Drive and Seth Child Road (K-113) west of Bill Snyder Family Stadium has reduced traffic on Kimball to two lanes head-to-head in that area. This portion of construction on Kimball is expected to be completed in mid-October.
  • Wildcat Creek bridge replacement project on Fort Riley Boulevard (K-18) near the intersection of Richards Drive which has reduced traffic to two lanes head-to-head in that area.  The project is expected to be completed in mid-November.

Pregame

  • Pregame incoming southbound traffic, the exit off Seth Child approaching Kimball is closed.
  • Fans driving from the north are asked to continue south to Claflin Road before exiting Seth Child and utilize College Avenue to the stadium.

Postgame

  • Manhattan residents are advised that law enforcement will divert eastbound traffic on Kimball for a short time to allow exiting football traffic to utilize both lanes through the construction zone onto Scenic Drive out to K-18 and I-70.
  • Because the northbound entrance ramp to Seth Child is closed, traffic wishing to go northbound will be diverted at Browning Avenue to Marlatt Avenue, then west to Seth Child.

A Traffic Direction Map is available at the bottom of this page.
