SBXLV to Have Super Impact on Traffic



    Several streets in Fort Worth, Arlington and Dallas will be closed leading up to Super Bowl XLV.


    The city of Fort Worth says several streets in downtown will be closed Tuesday through Feb. 8.

    Starting Tuesday, one block of Main Street between 3rd and 4th streets will be closed in Sundance Square, near the site of ESPN's Super Bowl XLV set.  On Wednesday, that will expand to cover the closure of 4th Street between Houston and Commerce and Main between 3rd and 5th streets.

    On Sunday, Houston Street between 3rd and 5th will be closed as well as 4th Street between Throckmorton and Houston.  The closure of that section of 4th will close 4th between Throckmorton and Commerce until at least Feb. 7.

    Starting Monday, Houston Street between 9th and 14th will be closed periodically as well as one block of 12th Street between Houston and Throckmorton streets near the Pittsburgh Steelers team hotel, the Fort Worth Omni.

    All roads will be reopened by Feb. 8.  To see a map of the road closures in Fort Worth, click here.

    Also, on Feb. 6, Main Street from north of the Trinity River into downtown and Sundance Square will be closed, that day only, for the Hope Walk route.


    The major roadway in Arlington that will be impacted by the Super Bowl are Collins Street and Randol Mill Road.  Neither of the streets will be entirely closed, but both will have some lanes shut down. 

    On Randol Mill, eastbound traffic will be directed north of the median, creating one lane of traffic in each direction from Friday, Jan. 28, to Tuesday, Feb. 8. Instead of having two lanes of traffic in each direction, there will only be one heading each way.

    Collins Street will be similar, taking northbound and southbound lanes of traffic into the southbound lanes from Saturday, Jan. 29 through Tuesday, Feb. 8. In addition, on game day – Sunday, Feb. 6 – all traffic on Collins will only be allowed to run south.

    The streets that are completely closed are Cowboys and Legends Way.


    The only scheduled road closure in Dallas will be the 400 Block of Olive Street, between Live Oak and Bryan.  The closure will run from Jan. 30 from 8 a.m. to about 8 a.m. Feb. 7.
