Traffic Changes Planned For Rolling Stones Concert

Posted October 8, 2005 10:57 a.m. EDT

— You might get no satisfaction if you are driving to the Rolling Stones concert at Wallace Wade Stadium on the Duke University campus Saturday.

The stadium has not seen a rock concert like the Rolling Stones since the 1970s, and school and civic officials advise motorists driving in the area to be patient.

City officials said streets on and around Duke's campus would be closed or have control access:


  • Towerview Road from Science Drive to Duke University Road
  • Science Drive starting at Highway 751
  • Campus Drive at Anderson Street toward the traffic circle
  • Flowers Drive toward the traffic circle
  • Controlled Access:

  • Duke University Road from Anderson Street to Highway 751
  • Highway 751 from Duke University Road to Erwin Road
  • Erwin Road from Highway 751 to Fulton Street
  • Satellite parking will be open at the American Tobacco Historic District's north parking deck and Duke Medical Center's Parking Garage 3 at Fulton and Pratt streets. Shuttles will run every 10 minutes from the decks.

    The garages and campus lots will open at 2 p.m. for the 7 p.m. concert. The stadium gates open at 5 p.m.

    Trey Anastasio, the former Phish guitarist, opens for the Stones, who are expected to play from 8:30 p.m. to about 11 p.m.

    Parking costs $15 per vehicle on campus and $12 downtown.

    Remaining field-level tickets sell for $350 and $160. Seats in the stands go for $95.
