Parking Information

Arrive Early

Browns fans are encouraged to arrive to Downtown Cleveland by noon and to FirstEnergy Stadium early in order to ensure they are able to enter the game and arrive at their seats prior to kickoff.

Traffic

Through the Browns Mobile App, fans are encourage to access WAZE to determine the best routes to Downtown Cleveland and desired parking lots (see parking below).

Vehicles commuting into Downtown Cleveland are recommended to use alternate traffic routes and minimize usage of the Shoreway’s E 9th Street and Lakeside Avenue/W 6th Street, particularly approaching and after noon.

Recommended entry points to Downtown Cleveland are W 25th Street off Eastbound Route 2 when approaching from the west side of Cleveland and Superior Avenue off 90 W when coming from the east side.

Fans are encouraged to follow @Browns and listen to the team’s pregame radio broadcasts on ESPN 850 and 92.3 The Fan for important updates on traffic patterns.

Parking Lots

Parking lots, managed by the City of Cleveland, located immediately around the stadium are pass-only lots, outside of ADA needs (as space permits). No cash parking is available in these locations, including the North Coast Harbor Lot and the Dock 32.

With the Browns Mobile App, fans may access WAZE for a list of cash parking lots in Downtown Cleveland.

Most recommended lots are located north of Superior Avenue and south of North Marginal Road and will help efficiently balance individual traffic time with a manageable walk to FirstEnergy Stadium.

Browns fans may also reserve parking spaces in other nearby parking garages and lots through Parking Panda in advance of the game or on gameday.

New walking routes, particularly for those accessing the Muni Lot, have been created to improve ingress and egress for both pedestrians and vehicles. 

For more information regarding downtown transportation and parking options, visit the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Cleveland page.

Directions

If traveling westbound on I-90 from the east and intending to park at the Municipal Lot, your travel time will be reduced by exiting at Exit 196, South Marginal Road, and following the roadway to the Municipal Lot.

If traveling westbound on I-90 from the east and intending to park on the North Marginal at one of the surface lots at Burke Airport or in that area, exit at E. 55th Street and follow North Marginal to the lots. Again, this will eliminate delays for you at E. 9th Street.

If traveling from the east westbound on I-90, and your intended parking location is off any of the major cross streets in downtown Cleveland, for example, Lakeside, St. Clair, Superior, Chester, and Euclid, follow I-90 west around Dead Man’s Curve exiting either Superior/St. Clair, or Chester, or Prospect exit, and travel westbound to your intended parking destination.

If traveling from the west or south, either northbound on I 71 or eastbound on I 90,  and your intended parking location is off any of the major cross streets in downtown Cleveland (Lakeside, St. Clair, Superior, Chester, and Euclid),  please do not exit on E.9th. Follow the highway to the Superior or the Lakeside exit and then travel westbound to your parking destination.
