Detroit Tigers 2018 Opening Day: Parking and traffic closures

The Detroit Tigers kick off the 2018 season on Thursday with Opening Day against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The team is reminding fans that are going to the game to get down there early as there are several traffic closures and also security getting into the park.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early, with gates opening at 11 a.m. While there are more than 8,000 spaces around Comerica Park and The District Detroit, they expect most to fill early.
Many spaces for guests with disabilities and season parking passes will be reserved in advance.
The team also recommends that guests utilize the various shuttles provided by local bars, restaurants and casinos.
