BATON ROUGE LSU is advising fans to arrive early for the Tigers' game against South Carolina on Saturday and be aware of changes in access to gates on the south end of Tiger Stadium due to a construction zone created by renovations.
LSU has begun preliminary construction on a new addition to the south end zone of Tiger Stadium that will add suites, club seats and general public seating for the 2014 season.
There will be limited pedestrian access to gates in the southeast corner of the stadium for fans coming from South Stadium Drive. Gates most impacted by the construction zone are Gates 11, 12, 14, 18 (Tiger Den Suites) and 20 (East Ramp), as well as Portal B on the southwest corner of the stadium.
For fans who enter through Gates 11, 12, 14, 18 and 20 on the east side of the stadium, the encouraged pedestrian route is to use Fieldhouse Drive and walk down to the stadium via Powerhouse Lane and walkways by Hatcher Hall and Johnston Hall.
Although all gates will be open, fans who sit in the south end zone are encouraged to use Gates 1-3 on the west side of the stadium.
