SHARE Going to Wrigley Field on Opening Day? Here’s what you need to know about transportation and parking

The Wrigley Field renovation project is ongoing during the regular season, and it will cause a number of changes to traffic and parking around the stadium.

The Cubs are encouraging the use of public transportation to come and go to the game because of street closures and diminished traffic flow.

Here’s what you can expect:

-The Red and Purple Parking Lots are gone, so the Cubs are strongly encouraging using the free remote parking service if fans plan to drive.

-The Blue and Brown Parking Lots will not be available for cash parking this season.

-The Remote Lot, located at 3900 N. Rockwell and accessed off of Irving Park Road, will be operational Opening Night and on all night and weekend games during the season. The Cubs will continue to provide free shuttle transportation to and from Wrigley Field.

-The resurfaced Green Lot will be open for fans during the season.

-Residents with permits for the Green Lot will be able to continue to use the lot on non-gamedays.

-The Cubs’ free bike check service will continue. This year, it will be located just north of The Cubs Store on the west side of Clark Street (across from the Wrigley Field Marquee).

-Pedestrian access and one lane of traffic on the east side of Clark Street will remain closed throughout the season with pedestrian access on the west side of Clark Street only.

-Waveland Avenue, from Clark Street to Sheffield Avenue, will remain closed to traffic with pedestrian access on the north side of Waveland only.

-Residents with vehicles on Clifton Avenue will be able to exit on Waveland heading west on Clark only.

-Sheffield Avenue will remain closed to traffic with pedestrian access on the east side of Sheffield only.

-Traffic aides will be stationed at the intersection of Clark and Waveland to help direct traffic flow.
