FTD will have multiple entrances to six parking lots with more than 5,000 spaces

STEVENS POINT

Parking for Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in Portage County will take place in several farm fields surrounding the Tent City area. 

This should help make navigating the grounds quicker and easier for exhibitors and others attending the show, according to John Kosmalski and Lee Miller, who co-chair the show's Parking Committee.

"One of the big advantages we have are big flat fields," Kosmalski said. 

"There will be parking on three sides of Tent City, which should allow for easier access," he explained. "We'll run a tram early each morning, but much of the parking will be within convenient walking distance." 

There are six entrances to the admission gates from the parking lots. Parking lots will be identified by letters to match entrance gates A through F and have separate color-coded flags so people can more readily locate their vehicles.

There will be parking on three sides of Tent City — to the north, west and south. There will be six entrance gates available for attendees, with all parking close to Tent City.

Exhibitor parking will be available in both the north and south parking lots. There will be plenty of volunteers to help guide traffic in and out of the event grounds, they assured. "We'll have 75 or more volunteers working each day, and 15 or more people working in each lot," Kosmalski said.

To maximize space, there will be special parking for motorcycles and bicycles underneath the center pivot irrigation system. "We figure that because the show is so close to Stevens Point, we might have several people riding their bikes," he said.

A handicap parking area will be located on the west side of Tent City. Buses will come in on the west side and make a loop, dropping people off at the admission gates. A special parking area has been set aside to accommodate buses. 

"Hopefully we'll be able to spread out the people among the various admission gates so they can enter the show in a timely fashion," Kosmalski said.

Both Kosmalski and Miller stressed that Parking Committee members also are working closely with the Traffic and Safety Committee to help ensure a smooth flow of vehicles into and out of the parking areas.

"At the start, we should have 5,686 parking spots if everyone parks properly," Miller said. "After the field demonstrations on Tuesday, we have additional parking spots."
