Additionally, the other streets around the Convention Center will have intermittent closures, including First Avenue South, Third Avenue South and 16th Street East. Event removals will take place Feb. 4-Feb. 8. Streets will reopen thereafter or sooner.

Over the past several months, the City of Minneapolis has worked closely with stakeholders, including the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee, NFL, their vendors and several other local partners to craft a traffic management plan that will enhance the Super Bowl LII experience while providing the minimum disruption to traffic and parking possible.
