Finding a parking spot and driving through town could be two new events at the Special Olympics this summer.
Construction on Highway 10 in Stevens Point means traffic will be detoured around town, and once spectators and athletes find the U.W. Stevens Point campus, a torn up parking lot means parking will be at a premium.
Stevens Point Police say off duty volunteer officers will help direct traffic and answer questions.
Some of the problems will be solved by the visitors themselves because many people have been there before and know the area well.
The Special Olympics run the first weekend in June.
