2021 Supercross finals coming to Rice-Eccles Stadium

Plan your commute: The 2021 event will impact traffic lanes along 500 South and Guardsman way for two weeks.
On April 24 and May 1, 2021, the Utah Sports Commission and Feld Entertainment, Inc., will host the last two rounds—16 & 17—of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross finals at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The 2021 event will span two weeks and allow for 13,000 fans to be in attendance during each race day while complying with all federal, state and local health guidance and mandates.
 
While Utah's statewide mask mandate lifts on April 10, 2021, the University of Utah and Rice-Eccles Stadium still require mask-wearing and social distancing measures of those visiting campus. Stadium staff will assist in the implementation and execution of safety protocols and work alongside an on-site medical team that will stand by in the event of an emergency.
 

Beginning Monday, April 19, 2021 one westbound lane—the far right lane—will be closed to through vehicle traffic for two weeks, and will reopen midnight on Sunday, May 2. Traffic signage and equipment will be in place to direct vehicle traffic through the remaining open lanes for this two week period. The north sidewalk along 500 South will remain open on weekdays. During the events on the race day Saturdays, April 24 and May 1, all sidewalks and vehicular lanes will be closed to all transportation. All pathways will reopen at midnight Sunday April 25 and May 2. 

All eastbound lanes of traffic will remain open throughout the duration of the event.

ROAD IMPACTS AND CLOSURES

Detour options for vehicular traffic on race days

Commuters wishing to exit or enter campus have the following options.

OPTION 1:   South Campus Drive eastbound or westbound to either 1300 East or Marrio Cappechi.

OPTION 2:   Turning left on Marrio Capecchi Drive and Foothill Drive to bypass the impacted area.
OPTION 3:   Utilizing North Campus Drive to bypass avoid the area completely.

All detour plans have been reviewed and approved by Salt Lake City and UDOT mandates. Additionally, U of U Health, Primary Children's Hospital, the VA Hospital, UTA and other emergency services have received copies of these plans.

 

Supercross has implemented enhanced health measures to help ensure the highest standards of wellness when it comes to live experiences. Seating capacity will be reduced at Rice-Eccles Stadium to a Pod Seating structure, which will allow family and friends to safely enjoy all the action while social distancing from other groups in attendance. Unless otherwise exempted by law, guests age 2 and older must wear a face covering except when actively eating and drinking – local venue rules also apply.
