CHICAGO -- Cubs fans have already flooded into Wrigleyville a couple of hours before Game 3, hoping for a home win.

If you're coming to Wrigley to watch the game from the stadium or one of the bars, keep some things in mind.

First off, parking restrictions: there will be no parking on Clark, Sheffield, Addison and Racine from Tuesday through 4 a.m. Friday.

There are also street closures in place on Sheffield and Waveland. Police say they may close more streets after the game if needed.

There were parking restrictions in place on Cornelia and Wilton as well, but those have now been lifted after residents complained about a lack of parking during the Cardinals series.

Crews towed dozens of cars from the Wrigleyville area Tuesday.  If yours is missing, you can call 311 to find out where it is.

If you're planning to come out Tuesday night, public transit is the way to go: Red Line to Addison. CTA is adding service there and on the #80 Irving and #152 Addison buses.

If you're taking Metra to one of the downtown stations, just walk to the Red Line station at Lake.

If you're driving, be prepared to pay big for parking.

Another option for drivers: park at the remote lot at Irving northbound and Rockwell, about two miles west of Wrigley Field. There is free parking and a free shuttle to the game.
