Expect heavier I-10, Loop 101 traffic due to Monday Night Football
GLENDALE – Expect heavier afternoon rush hour traffic on West Valley freeways as the Arizona Cardinals play host to Monday Night Football on Sept. 25.
With the Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys kicking off at 5:30 p.m. in Glendale, drivers using Interstate 10 west from downtown Phoenix and the Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) should allow extra travel time and consider starting their trips earlier or later than anticipated game traffic.
Ticketholders driving from north Scottsdale and north Phoenix should consider taking Loop 101 west and south to University of Phoenix Stadium rather than routes that would put them on westbound I-10. Freeway message boards will carry critical updates on current and anticipated traffic conditions as well as recommended exits.
Drivers can get traffic updates through the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Twitter account (@ArizonaDOT), via ADOT’s Arizona Traveler Information site at az511.gov and by calling 511. Information on Glendale and Phoenix traffic conditions is available via Twitter at @GlendaleAZPD and @phxstreettrans.
