TSSAA basketball tournaments are as reliable as daffodils popping up each March in Tennessee, and so are the traffic changes they make necessary around MTSU.
The TSSAA Division 1 High School Basketball Tournaments — March 5-8 for the girls and March 12-15 for boys — will cause changes in parking and traffic patterns on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University, which is again hosting the events.
As a result, motorists should be aware of several factors affecting roads and parking.
