Big events at Apogee Stadium often affect the Denia neighborhood, especially when some drivers forget their manners as they park their car and head towards the event. It isn’t illegal to park on city streets, but it is illegal to block driveways, fire hydrants, and park on the grass.
The neighborhood circulated some helpful information among themselves that may be of interest to others living or traveling near the stadium on game days. The North Texas bridge over I-35 will be shut down three hours before kickoff, according to UNT officials. That means, the best way to exist the neighborhood is to head towards Fort Worth Drive.
Denton police will step up patrols in the neighborhood, especially on Highland Park Road and the area around the Duck Pond. While the police will be patrolling the area, they depend on neighbors to report things. Residents can report illegal parked cars and other nuisances through the department’s main line, 349-8181. Once connected, and the recorded menu begins, press “9,” for the duty officer. Give the officer the nature and location of the problem, and they will contact one of the officers in the field.
