Traffic Tips for Getting to National Comedy Theatre

Avoid the intersection at Southern Ave & Alma School


As construction continues on Southern Ave, the intersection at Southern & Alma School continues to be a big mess and a very long wait. This intersection will also be CLOSED completely the weekend of 9/12 & 13. We suggest using Dobson to reach NCT or... sneak around the moat of Fiesta Mall to avoid Southern & Alma School.
