Updates on road construction near the Festival Stage

June 28, 2016 - 6:21 PM

When attending Riverside in the Park this summer, please allow extra time for your arrival due to ongoing road construction near the Festival Stage in Lower City Park. It might take a little longer than usual to reach us (though we promise that the show will be worth it!)

If approaching from the north, via Park Road: At the moment, road construction has part of Park Road blocked off, just before reaching Lower City Park. Be aware that road detour signs are currently posted that direct you to an alternate route around the construction. Rely on these signs, rather than your GPS, as you approach the theatre.

If approaching from the south, via Dubuque Street: This week (July 5-10), traffic has been reduced to one lane in either direction. Allow extra time due to this.

Construction projects will be ongoing throughout the summer. We will post updates here if traffic is expected to be especially challenging.

You can find more information about the project at
