Cleveland parking restrictions for the Cavs game

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -

There are some parking restrictions you should know about if you plan to attend this week's NBA Finals as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Golden State Warriors in games three and four.

The parking restrictions will be in place on Wednesday, June 6 beginning at 11 a.m.

Due to enhanced security measures around the Quicken Loans Arena, guests and visitors should anticipate delays to and from the venue.

“No Parking” restrictions will be in place at the following areas:

  • Huron Road – from Ontario Street to Prospect Avenue and from West 6th Street to Ontario Street
  • Prospect Avenue – from Ontario Street to East 14th Street and from Ontario Street to West 6th Street
  • East 9th Street – from Euclid Avenue to Carnegie Avenue
  • East 4th Street – from Prospect Avenue to Huron Road
  • East 2nd Street – from High Street to Prospect Avenue
  • Erie Court – between East 9th Street and East 14th Street

On Friday, June 8, the Cleveland Cavaliers will host Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena at 9 p.m. The “No Parking” restrictions will go into effect at 4 p.m.

In addition to the notification of parking restrictions, the City of Cleveland and Division of Police offer the following advice to improve visits to downtown:

Arrive early. Plan your commute beforehand to effectively utilize your time. For Wednesday and Friday’s Cavaliers game, there will be a free FanFest outside Quicken Loans Arena two and a half hours before tip-off. Arrive early to enjoy the festivities. For fans with tickets to the games, The Q’s doors will open at 7 p.m., two hours prior to tipoff.

Ride RTA. Park for free at many of RTA’s rapid stations. Use RTA’s mobile ticketing app to buy a $5.50 All-Day-Pass and take the train to Tower City Station for an easy walk to the Q through the enclosed Walkway near the Tower City food court. Walkways opens three hours before each game. Commemorative $5 cash, round-trip tickets will be sold at Brookpark, Puritas, Triskett, Tower City Light Rail and Lou Stokes-Windermere Stations. All rapid lines will operate for 60 minutes after the games end. Additional details are here.

Put Your Junk in Your Trunk.  Valuable items should not be left in the interior of a vehicle where others can see them. Even better is to place these items in the trunk prior to arriving at your destination.

Be cautious of counterfeit tickets. The risk of purchasing counterfeit tickets from scalpers off the street is high during the NBA Finals. Fans who purchase tickets from a secondary source are taking a chance. Law enforcement seeks to proactively curb such activity and encourage buyers to be aware. Purchasing tickets via other means creates the potential for possessing either an invalid or counterfeit ticket. The Cleveland Cavaliers are not responsible for tickets purchased through secondary sources.

See Something, Say Something. If you see something suspicious, say something. Report any suspicious activity to safety officials.

Drive Safely: Be aware of increased pedestrian traffic in the downtown area. Motorists are encouraged to follow all posted signage and allow for extra travel time to reach and depart downtown venues.
