City Begins To Give People Super Bowl Playbook


The City of New Orleans wants to make sure traffic changes for the Super Bowl don’t catch anybody by surprise.  Tuesday, the city outlined its preliminary traffic plan for the big game.

The first round of closures will begin on Saturday, January 25 and will include several roads and at least one highway exit by the Superdome to allow workers to begin to assemble equipment in the area.  Roads marked for closure include Dave Dixon Drive, Magnolia Avenue, West Stadium Drive, Howard Avenue and Sugar Bowl Drive.

More traffic changes will come as game day, Feb. 3, approaches.  The city warns that parking will be extremely limited throughout the Super Bowl and Carnival.  The mayor’s office is encouraging people to use public transportation whenever possible.

“We’re asking New Orleanians to be patient and plan their routes in advance,” said Lt. Col. Jerry Sneed, Deputy Mayor of Public Safety and Homeland Security.

The traffic plan, including maps, is available online at
