OFFSITE PARKING:

 

The UNITED HEALTHCARE Express Shuttle Lot will be color coded TEAL.

 

The MILLER MALL Express Shuttle Lot will be color coded YELLOW.

 

During the busy morning hours, when traffic gets heavy, Stebner Road from Miller Trunk Hwy 53 will change to a 2 lane one- way in flow, leading directly into the GENERAL EVENT PARKING lot.  All Vehicles entering on Stebner Road during this time will flow directly into this lot and through traffic will not be allowed.

 

At the end of each day's events, exiting traffic becomes very heavy between 4pm-7pm. During these times emphasis is placed on exiting traffic and vehicle flow into the event area is limited.  When traffic backs up, Stebner Road will be changed to a 2-lane one way out flow, from the GENERAL EVENT PARKING lot out to Miller Trunk Hwy 53. NO inbound traffic will be let in on Stebner Road during this time.

 

Any vehicles needing to get into the event area during this time will need to use Cirrus Drive.

 

Grinden Drive along the Duluth International Airport will be posted "No Stopping".  That roadway will be patrolled and vehicles in violation will be tagged.

 

Motorists in the area of the Air Show should slow down, drive with care, and watch for signs, barricades, pedestrians, and Police Officers directing traffic.

 

Some parking in the Air Show Lot has been reduced because of wet conditions.  Carpooling is strongly recommended.  Parking will be allowed in the MILLER HILL MALL lot with shuttle buses running continuously to and from the Duluth Air Show.  Look for the posted "Air Show Shuttle Bus" signs in the MILLER MALL lot for bus stop locations.  Shuttle rides will be $10 per person for a round trip ticket.
