OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss fans can look forward to easier parking options in Oxford.

According to Oxford's director of parking, Matt Davis, the new garage is expected to open any day now.

Davis said the contractor is working on the final touches.

The garage, located on the Square in Downtown Oxford, will add nearly 400 parking spots to the Square.

Residents said it will be much less stressful to find a place to park on game day weekends.

According to Davis, people who want to park on the first floor will have the option to buy a monthly permit or can purchase an hourly pass.

He said the second, third and fourth floors will be free.

However, Davis said the prices will fluctuate during weekends that usually bring a lot of traffic.

It will be $10 to park in the garage during games that are not against other SEC opponents.

For the games that are, it will cost $20 to park in the garage.

The original opening date for the garage was originally set for Tuesday, but Davis said he is now expecting just a few more days.

According to Davis, the garage should still be open this week.
