Arlington prepares for an unprecedented amount of traffic on opening day of the Cowboys Stadium
The Arlington Traffic Management center has placed approximately 70 cameras that overlook the roads and highway in hopes to better manage the traffic flow.
As workers finish the final touches on the Cowboys Stadium in preparation for tomorrow's opening concert with George Strait, the Arlington Traffic Management Center prepares for the massive amount of traffic that is expected throughout the day. An estimated 60,000 people are expected to be in attendance at the concert. The TMC believes that it is well-prepared to direct traffic and oversee any transportation problems along the way. They have set in place approximately 70 cameras that overlook the roads and highway in hopes to better manage the traffic flow for the concert and future events at the stadium.
Mike Blake, Transportation Systems Coordinator with the Arlington Traffic Management Center, advises guests to spread out arrival times and check for alternate routes to and from the stadium. An interactive parking site is available at www.dallascowboysmaps.com to help guests find the best route to their assigned parking lot.
