Officials announced changes Wednesday aimed at preventing a similar traffic headache like the one that happened during the first Easley High School football game last week.
Dozens of drivers headed to last Friday's Daniel vs. Easley game, were stuck in traffic for nearly two hours. Some people who were in the traffic jam vented their frustrations on social media. Others called the FOX Carolina newsroom to complain.
On Wednesday, officials said they are implementing changes for the next home game Sept. 7 that hopefully will alleviate the congestion.
First, all entrances to the new Easley High School campus will be open to arriving fans. Last week, only two entrances were open to arrivals, while all three were used as exits.
Second, the $2 fee charged for parking on campus will not be charged. Officials said that they do not believe the collection of the fee caused the delay, but they have decided to forgo the fee as the traffic pattern is studied.
Finally, officials said the fan bases for next Friday's Wren vs. Easley game should be approaching the stadium from opposite directions. They said this fact should help keep traffic flowing.
