Freeway delays expected for Cardinals Monday Night Football game in Glendale
PHOENIX — The Arizona Cardinals host the Los Angeles Rams in this week’s Monday Night Football game, an event that will bolster Phoenix’s metro freeways during rush hour traffic.
Commuters are strongly encouraged to allow extra time on the way home and for fans to arrive early for the game, scheduled for a 6:15 p.m. kickoff at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.
The Loop 101 Agua Fria freeway in Glendale and westbound Interstate 10 will be the hardest hit freeways with heavier traffic and longer travel times.
Drivers coming from the East Valley can use the 202 Loop northbound from the South Mountain Freeway to I-10 to get to the West Valley.
Fans could also use the 101 loop southbound and westbound west of I-17 to get to Glendale.
The Loop 101 northbound on-ramps at Indian School Road, Camelback Road and Cardinals Way as well as the Loop 101 southbound on-ramp at Glendale Avenue will be closed from approximately 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. h 30.
The southbound Loop 101 exit ramps at Cardinals Way and Camelback Road and the loop 101 northbound and southbound exit ramps at Maryland Avenue near the stadium will be closed from approximately 8:45 p.m. to 11:45 p.m.
