New Parking Rules In Effect During Flint Car Show 8-16-2010

In order to accommodate the more than 250,000 spectators expected to participate in this year’s Back to the Bricks Cruise Festival, new rules have been put in place to streamline the parking situation in downtown Flint.
Officials said on Saturday morning between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. there will be no early parking allowed on the downtown streets that will be closed to traffic for the event, including South Saginaw, Harrison and Beach streets.
Volunteers, sponsors, vendors and specific car club members will be allowed to enter early with an approved gate pass.
Staged parking (first in, first out) will take place between Interstate 69 to Court Street and from the north in the University of Michigan – Flint parking lot located at Saginaw Street and Robert T. Longway Boulevard.
“This is new for this year and hopefully having an orderly staged parking program will better facilitate our utilization of parking,” said Al Hatch, event chairman. “This should alleviate the problems we’ve had with early arrivals.”
Also, from 2 a.m. until 6 a.m. Saturday morning, the City of Flint Police will be checking to ensure that vehicles parked on the aforementioned sections of South Saginaw, Harrison and Beach have been moved.
Vehicles parked on those streets after 5 a.m. are at risk of being towed, officials said.
