Construction results in only east side access this month for Turpin Stadium

A8-9-18 construction

Fans attending Saturday morning’s Northwestern State football intrasquad preseason game should enter Turpin Stadium on the east side, due to renovations on the west side that have closed a quarter-mile portion of Caspari Street.

The Demons kick off their competition at 9:30 a.m. after taking the field at 9 a.m. for warmups. Gates on the east side and at the southeast corner of the stadium, nearest the athletic fieldhouse, will be open for fans to use.

There is no parking permitted near the southeast gate.

The west side lower deck of the stadium, which has chairback seats, is open for fans, along with the east side grandstands. Caspari Street runs directly behind the west side of the stadium.

The construction project includes resurfacing Caspari Street and parking areas adjacent to the stadium, and will be completed before NSU’s home opener Saturday, Sept. 8 against Grambling.
