Beginning Monday August 27, the no-parking restriction on Varsity Drive has been temporarily lifted along certain sections of the street. The City of Tyler has placed bags over the signs in the areas that parking will be allowed. In particular, fire zones, the bus stop, and areas immediately adjacent to entrances and exits are still no-parking zones and are marked accordingly.

The speed limit on Varsity drive is 30 miles per hour. Motorists and pedestrians are urged to use caution as Varsity Drive becomes congested during peak traffic times. As always, pedestrians should take extra time to check traffic both ways prior to crossing the street and drivers are urged to watch for pedestrian traffic. Police will be monitoring Varsity Drive closely to ensure all applicable traffic and parking laws are being obeyed.
