Thursday Night Football--Traffic Advisory
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Downtown traffic will be heavier than normal during peak times Thursday afternoon and evening as football fans head to Nissan Stadium for the 7:25 p.m. game between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars. Fans are advised to make their parking plans before leaving for the stadium and to allow extra time.
The usual NFL traffic management plan will be in effect at 4 p.m. Thursday. The Woodland Street Bridge will close at that point and will be available to only pedestrians and shuttle buses through the conclusion of the game.
Gates to Nissan Stadium will open at 5:30 p.m. Stadium parking lots open at 3 p.m. to fans with parking passes. There is no cash parking on the Nissan Stadium campus. Those who drive to Nissan Stadium without a parking pass will be turned away and directed to seek parking downtown.
InShuttle will provide park and ride bus service beginning at 5:55 p.m. for this game ($10 per person) from parking lots at 10th Circle North & Charlotte Avenue AND Greer Stadium.
Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge
The Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge (Gateway Bridge), which connects East Nashville to downtown, will be open to eastbound and westbound traffic until the beginning of mass egress. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, all lanes of the bridge will be open to westbound traffic only, which should more quickly disperse congestion around Nissan Stadium.
Those attending the game are reminded of the NFL’s league-wide restrictions, implemented in 2013, on what can be brought into stadiums. Anything larger than a clutch style purse must be a clear plastic bag, medical items excluded. Nissan Stadium security staff will be enforcing the bag policy.
