As you’ve probably heard, NC DOT has been working on an underground tunnel that connects one of the main NC State tailgating lots to Carter-Finley Stadium.

Well, that tunnel is now complete and ready for use during this weekend’s game. This means Wolfpack fans can have fun at their tailgate and not worry about getting mowed over by a car while trying to cross Trinity Rd (one of the main arteries to the stadium). Here is a sneak peek at what it looks like, thanks to Wolfpack podcaster/journalist James Curle.

The tunnel is located near the intersection of Trinity Rd and Youth Center Dr.
Not only does this keep pedestrians heading to the game safe, but it also allows traffic to flow without having to yield for pedestrians every 3 minutes near that intersection.
The completion comes at the perfect time as NC State has two home games in a row before the NC State Fair takes over the lots.
