DARIEN, Conn. — Big crowds are expected at the Friday night football game at Darien High School, so police have issued a traffic advisory.

The Darien Police Department said it will enforce traffic regulations and monitor security for the Darien High game. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday against Wilton High.

All traffic must enter the DHS campus from Noroton Avenue. High School Lane and Nutmeg Lane will be closed to incoming traffic.

Spectators are strongly urged to carpool, with big crowds expected.

Due to the large number of vehicles expected, parking regulations and designated tow away zones will be strictly enforced, police said. A handicapped permit is required to park in the limited handicapped parking spaces available.

When parking capacity has been reached, Noroton Avenue Extension will be closed to vehicular traffic, police aid.

Additional parking is available at United Methodist Church, the Darien Community Association, Middlesex Middle School and McGuane Field.

No parking will be allowed on Noroton Avenue and in those areas that are specifically designated as “No Parking.”

Spectators are reminded that no alcoholic beverages are allowed on school property — and this will be strictly enforced, police said. No tailgating will be allowed on school property.

All bags, backpacks and coolers will be subject to inspection. Spectators will not be allowed to bring bottles into the game.

At the conclusion of the game, incoming traffic will not be allowed onto DHS campus grounds until the parking lots are clear.

DHS campus grounds will close to the public after all parking lots are clear.
