As preparations continue for the National Football League’s biggest event of the season, the Bay Area is bracing for a surge in motor vehicle, foot, and bicycle traffic that comes with it. In an effort to give the public a heads-up before they head out, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) worked with the California Department of Transportation to develop a Super Bowl 50 traffic information website: www.superbowl50traffic.com.
The website, which launched on Monday, Jan. 25 features resources to help the public travel in and around the Super Bowl as quickly and safely as possible. Users will find current traffic advisories, detours, closures, alternate transportation links, law enforcement resources, and additional information. The site also includes a live feed from the CHP’s social media accounts highlighting activity and traffic alerts in and around the various Super Bowl venues.
“Working with our traffic safety partners, we have created a user-friendly, online tool to help the public navigate the influx of traffic leading up to and through the big game,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “The crowds are coming, but with a little preparation and a lot of patience behind the wheel, we will all get to our destinations safely.”
The mission of the California Highway Patrol is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to the people of California.
