NORMAN, Okla. – Football season is here and Sooner fans will be flocking to Norman for OU’s first home game this weekend.

The University of Oklahoma kicks off its football season on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 6 p.m. against Akron.

Before you can enjoy the game from the stands, you’ll have to maneuver a bit of construction.

The Norman Police Department says all I-35 interchanges are open, but Hwy 9 may be congested.

Hwy 9 and 24th Ave. S.W. is under construction. Cross traffic from 24th is not allowed and no left turns are allowed from any direction.

Hwy 9 will have two lanes open eastbound and westbound through the intersection.

Authorities are also warning fans about the consequences for parking in restricted areas.

Areas immediately around the university campus are barricaded in several locations, preventing or restricting vehicular traffic. Parking immediately around the stadium requires a permit.

Your car may be towed if it is parked at yellow curbs and inside fire lanes, blocking a fire hydrant, illegal use of handicapped parking and illegally parking on private property.
