Plan for heavy traffic on westbound Interstate 10 and Loop 101 (Agua Fria Freeway) Tuesday, May 8

West Valley traffic won’t be swift during the afternoon and evening hours of Tuesday, May 8, as Taylor Swift kicks off her stadium tour in Glendale. More than 55,000 fans are expected to make their way to and from University of Phoenix Stadium, increasing traffic volume in the area.

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers who use westbound I-10 and the Loop 101 to consider alternate routes, allow extra travel time and be patient.

Concertgoers are advised to arrive early and keep the following information in mind:

Consider using Loop 101 in the north Valley as an alternate route to and from the stadium. Drivers can access parking lots on the north side of the stadium from Northern and Glendale avenues.

Access to parking lots from south of the stadium will be available by exiting I-10 at 91st Avenue or by exiting the Loop 101 at Camelback Road.

Parking lots open at 3 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. The concert is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Heavy traffic is also expected as fans leave the stadium Tuesday night.

Rideshare and drop-off/pickup will be routed off of the Loop 101 at Bethany Home Road and into the W3 lot on the southwest side of the stadium (95th Avenue and Bethany Home Road).

Note: Bethany Home Road is closed between 91st and 95th avenues for construction. Maryland Avenue between 93rd and 95th avenues and 95th Avenue west of the stadium between Bethany Home Road and Maryland Avenue will be closed to all vehicular traffic.
