HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -
Police are making changes to the parking situation at Bishop McDevitt football games.
Swatara and Lower Paxton Township police said people who showed up to last week's game ended up blocking streets with their cars and there was a lot of traffic congestion.
Police were concerned because if there had been an emergency, first responders could not have gotten through.
As a result, for future games, police are restricting parking to one side of the road in the neighborhood across from the school. Police will have signs up and extra officers on hand. They said they will ticket and tow violators.
Some people will have to park and walk further, but police said it's the only way to keep the streets open and safe.
