The onslaught of people coming to Atlanta for the Super Bowl is going to put a strain on city streets, which already have a reputation for hosting heinous traffic jams.
If this concerns you, come to an upcoming meeting being held by the Atlanta Police Department and the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee. Officials will present detailed traffic plans and street and lane closures for the 10-day event stretching from Jan. 26 to Feb. 4.
Residents and businesses will learn about expectations for traffic flow management during that time frame. After formal presentations are made, guests can ask questions at tables set up with information on specific areas, such as Downtown, Westside, Midtown or Buckhead.
The meetings are scheduled to be held at the Georgia World Congress Center, 285 Andrew Young International Boulevard NW, Building C in the Auditorium, on the following dates and times:
- Monday, Dec. 17 and Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 6 p.m.
- Wednesday, Dec. 19 and Thursday, Dec. 20 at 10 a.m.
Parking will be available in the Red Deck and Gold Deck for $15. Guests can also arrive via MARTA and exit at the Dome/ GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center or Vine City stations.
