Authorities advise public to arrive early for Bayou Country Superfest

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Law enforcement are asking people who are attending Bayou Country Superfest to do their part to help out with traffic flow.

Capt. Cory Lalonde with LSU police said authorities are expecting massive crowds Memorial weekend, but won't be alternating traffic flow to help with traffic congestion. He said there will be different agencies helping with traffic patrols starting Friday.

"We will have over 180 officers on campus," said Capt. Lalonde. "That includes officers working traffic and officers working on the outside of the stadium."

CATS bus service said it will not have special shuttles for the event. There are other options like car-pooling and Uber that people can use.

In addition, Lalonde said parking near Tiger Stadium will be reserved. He advises people to get there as early as possible.

"We want people to plan ahead and expect delays," said Lalonde. "You know it's just one of those things where people are going to try and come and leave at the same time so just plan accordingly."
