Campaign Stop to Cause Binghamton Parking Problems
City of Binghamton officials say people who work and live in Downtown Binghamton can expect parking and traffic issues again as a second presidential campaign makes a stop in the Parlor City this week.
As with the Monday, April 11 rally with Democrat Bernie Sanders, the City is asking participants for the Ted Cruz event at the Forum Theater Friday, April 15 to by-pass the City's public parking garages at State and Water Streets, that are already crowded with monthly business, government vehicle and residential parkers.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive well ahead of the scheduled 11:15 a.m. start of the rally and use free public parking at NYSEG Stadium on Henry Street. Limited on-street public parking is available Downtown, in residential areas East and West of the Forum and off State Street to the North.
Attendees are encouraged to carpool and use B.C. Transit public buses.
Again, ticket-holders and possible demonstrators should anticipate having to walk several blocks to reach the Forum.
Motorists can experience traffic delays and backups Downtown until mid-afternoon.
