Plan Your Visit

Traffic and parking patterns vary from event to event. 

Parking immediately around the arena is limited. There are over 10,000 surface lot and garage parking spaces within a short walk of the venue. Officers or staff may direct you to surrounding lots.  Consider lots south of Lane Ave. near St. John Arena and Ohio Stadium.  

Alternate routes can improve your experience!  Alternates from Route 315 include Medical Center Drive, North Broadway or Kinnear Roads.  Consider entry westbound from I-71.  

Lane restrictions are in place for City of Columbus infrastructure work and Olentangy River Road has been reduced to one lane in each direction near Lane Avenue.  We encourage you to allow extra time for your arrival now until May when work is estimated to be completed.
