Thursday Night NFL Football Brings Heavier than Normal Traffic Downtown



Downtown traffic will be heavier than normal tomorrow evening as football fans head to Nissan Stadium for the 7:20 p.m. game between the Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars.

The usual NFL traffic management plan will be in effect. The Woodland Street Bridge will close by 5:30 p.m. and will be available to only pedestrians and shuttle buses through the conclusion of the game.

Gates to Nissan Stadium open at 5 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 directed to seek parking downtown.

Shuttle Service

InShuttle will provide park and ride bus service beginning at 5:50 p.m. for this game ($10 per person) from parking lots at 10th Circle North & Charlotte Avenue and Rosa L. Parks Blvd & 10th Circle North.

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.

Bag Restrictions

Those attending the game are reminded of the NFL’s league-wide restrictions 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. More information on the bag restrictions
