BATON ROUGE – LSU issued parking and traffic notifications to those coming to campus tomorrow for Billy Cannon’s visitation and funeral service.


Dr. Cannon’s visitation and funeral will be held Wednesday, May 23 at the Maravich Center on the LSU campus and will be open to the public. Cannon, a Baton Rouge native and 1959 LSU graduate, passed away peacefully in his home early Sunday morning at the age of 80.

The public will have free and open parking in lots located off of Nicholson Drive. The lots for the public to utilize tomorrow include: Lots 101, 104, 105, 401 and 404. Due to road construction on Nicholson Drive, entry to lots 101 and 401 will either be from South Stadium Drive or South Quad Drive.


The public is reminded that Nicholson Drive is currently under construction around campus and that traffic is limited to one lane in each direction. Access to North Stadium Road via Nicholson Drive is also unavailable.  


LSU will provide a shuttle for those needing assistance tomorrow. The pickup off location for those needing assistance on getting to the Maravich Center will be Lot 401 (located off South Stadium Drive).


LSU will be open to all traffic tomorrow beginning at 11 a.m. as the arm bars that restrict car access on campus will not be in use.
