GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are repaving and reorienting part of Lambeau Field's east parking lot.

The project includes the area where the underground storm water detention tank was recently installed. The area to be repaved includes much of the area north of the Oneida Nation Gate and east of the stadium.

When the lot is re-striped, cars will park facing north and south, with lanes running along east-west lines. Previously, parked cars faced east-west. The reorientation should make it easier for fans coming to Lambeau Field from the east because they'll be able to walk along the lanes instead of cutting between parked cars.

The reorientation will not affect the number of parking spaces, said Aaron Popkey, Packers director of public affairs.

The project is slated for completion in July, before the annual shareholders meeting scheduled for July 21.

The Packers repave parts of the parking lot on a rotating basis. That is the only repaving scheduled for this year, Popkey said.
