How is traffic getting to the new BBT Stadium from the University area... Stop and go all along 77?

I dunno, but it's not "stop and go" on I-77 whenever the Carolina Panthers play, so I can't see how it would be such when a stadium with 1/7th the capacity has an event.

There is of course slower moving traffic at each of the intersections with I-77, but you aren't going to run into the stop and go until you get into Uptown near the Ballpark.

The Stadium didn't just open either.

Thanks,

I ask because the Panthers play on Sunday where there is not already rush hour traffic. The Knights start playing at the tail end of rush hour.

I've not had any problem getting to the BBT Ballpark, in the 3 games I've been to. 85-77S- exit at Trade- bear right, stay on 4th to Graham. Ample parking, literally, across from the stadium. Enjoy!

That's a good point, but ultimately you'd be headed inbound while others are headed outbound. (And conversely why traffic can be difficult at PNC Pavillion for Friday night concerts)

Going down Statesville works well from Harris. Really no noticeable traffic and downtown a non issue after 6:00 pm.
