Please note the following construction ramp closure:
ATTENTION: The ramp from Westbound I-196 to Northbound I-196 will be closed before and during the regatta. If you planned to come from the east, please follow these directions to the park instead:
Follow I-96 past the I-196 exit to M-44 Connector/Plainfield Avenue, Exit 33. Turn right/south from the exit onto Plainfield. Follow Plainfield south ~3/4 mile to 3 Mile Rd. and turn right. Take 3 Mile Rd. west 1 mile to Monroe Ave. and turn right. Athlete parking is just ahead on the left. Coach/trailer parking is 1/4 mile north, on the left. There is a map at www.grrowing.org
NOTE: Due to parking limitations at Riverside Park we will issue parking passes with the registration packages. Athletes will typically have enough passes for 1 car with 3-4 athletes. Limited overflow parking is available in the neighborhood to the east. Also, utility trailers with team tents can enter the park through the Boat Launch 2 entrance on Friday and should be left with the tent. Utility trailers arriving on Saturday should be parked north of the footbridge via the Boat Launch 3 entrance.
