Helpful Hint: If you are headed southbound on 7th St. and traffic is backed-up, consider turning right on Roosevelt or Fillmore Sts. and use 1st St. or 1st Ave. to travel south.
Use the HOV lanes to get in and out of Copper Square for events. Multiple passengers are required only during peak rush hours of 6am-9am and 3pm-7pm weekdays.
