Construction and traffic management will close down some routes leading to the Dome.

To make that trip as smooth as possible, the city of Fargo is recommending specific routes, and creating detours forcing drivers to follow them.

Expect delays and congestion on construction heavy 19th Avenue North.

There'll be offsite parking options near 17th Avenue at John E. Carlson Coliseum in addition to NDSU's Campus and Fargo North High School.

FargoDome officials are warning that pedestrian traffic could also complicate the drive, recommending concert goers car pool or use public transportation.

A few local establishments like Hennesey's in South Fargo and Sickies garage are offering shuttle services for a $10 fee.

Whatever mode you use to get to the Dome, you might want to do it early to avoid a headache,

Parking lots at the Dome will open at 4pm, with doors to the show opening at 6:30.

If you're traveling from downtown you're asked to use 10th street.  That's where you'll find this large detour sign sending you two blocks down to 17th Avenue.

From there traffic officers will control the cross over University Drive.
