As Super Bowl LVI approaches, Inglewood city officials have released a list of road closures that are slated to take effect beginning Thursday in anticipation of the first major sports championship to be held at SoFi Stadium.
“Street closures will be minimal, and serve to expedite traffic to and from SoFi stadium while minimizing impact to the surrounding neighborhoods,” a news release from the city stated.
City officials actually anticipate a lower volume of traffic than a typical event at the stadium because many ticketholders will be traveling to the venue in high-occupancy shuttles, as on-site parking will be limited that day. The website parksuperbowl.com has more details on transportation options for the Feb. 13 event.
To help facilitate the flow of traffic to and from the stadium on game day, fans without tickets are discouraged from heading to the area this Sunday.
“Loitering will not be permitted, and enforcement will be in place to ensure that the surrounding areas remain clear,” the release stated, adding that, “Permit parking restrictions will be strongly enforced.”
Street closures will begin as early as Thursday and some won’t be lifted until early Monday morning. Traffic conditions near the stadium should be similar to that of regular game days, officials said.
Here’s a list of road closures provided by the city, as well as when they are expected to begin and end.
