Remember Title Tuesday? We're doing it again this week. 

The Cleveland Indians are coming home to play Game 6 of the World Series.

Meanwhile, the Cavs will take on the Houston Rockets at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavs were able to move up their game time from 8 p.m. to 6 p.m. to accommodate fans who want to watch both. 

Still, downtown will be packed. 

To improve the flow of traffic, Cleveland police will implement "no parking designations" on the following streets from noon to 2 a.m. These parking restrictions will also be in place for Game 7, if necessary.

  • Prospect Avenue from Ontario Street to East14th Street.
  • Huron Road from Ontario Street to Prospect Avenue.
  • Bolivar Road from East 9th Street to East 14th Street.
  • Carnegie Avenue from East 9th Street to East 14th Street.
  • East 9th Street from Superior Avenue to Carnegie Avenue.
  • East 4th Street from Huron Road to Prospect Avenue.

Gates at Progressive Field open at 6 p.m. Doors at Quicken Loans Arena open at 4:30 p.m. 

Following the Cavs game, fans can stay inside to watch Game 6 on the Humongotron.

Tips for driving downtown:

  • Gateway East Garage will be closed to daily and monthly parking. Gateway East Garage will be operating in a “Day Game” situation on Nov. 1
  • No cash parking or monthly parking passes will be permitted.
  • Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavilers game-day pass parking will be permitted. This is for Nov. 1 only.

Taking the RTA?

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is expanding service for all World Series games and watch parties. RTA employees will be on hand to direct customers and sell a $5 round-trip, commemorative World Series pass at the busiest stations.

Service on all rail lines will operate up to 60 minutes after the game or watch parties end, even if the game goes into extra innings. Many Rapid stations offer free parking.
