Expect heavier freeway traffic with Taylor Swift concert Tuesday, May 8, in Glendale
PHOENIX – With singer Taylor Swift performing the evening of Tuesday, May 8, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, those heading to the West Valley should plan for heavier traffic on Interstate 10 and the Loop 101 Agua Fria Freeway, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
Motorists should budget extra travel time and consider making an earlier start west in the afternoon. Alternatives to I-10 West include taking Loop 101 west and south from Interstate 17 in the north Valley.
The stadium parking lot opens at 3 p.m., and the entertainment is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
