The Los Lunas School District has a parking plan to handle the expected 4,000 football fans going to the “Valencia Bowl” football game on Sept. 13. Buses will transport fans to the stadium from a parking area at the Village of Los Lunas administrative offices.
It is recommended that Belen fans use NM 314 and Main Street in Los Lunas to reach the parking area on Don Pasqual Road to reduce the amount of traffic on Main Street near Los Lunas High School.
General parking will be in the area between the village offices and the Fred Luna Senior Citizens Center. (No. 7 on the map.) Overflow parking will be in the field north of Katherine Gallegos Elementary School.
Buses will transport fans to the field at the high school. The pickup spot for the bus will be at the west end of the parking area (No. 8).
Fans with handicap parking permits may park near the stadium at the swimming pool (No. 3). An area beside the baseball field (No. 2) is available for VIP parking for those with the authorized permit. Los Lunas football athletes, band members and school staff are to park in the high school parking lot (No. 5). The Belen athletic bus will be parked near the stadium (No. 4.)
All traffic in the stadium area will be one way from Los Cerritos Road to Emilio Lopez Road.
