[ARCHIVED] Traffic Advisory: NCAA Championship Football Game at Toyota Stadium on Sunday, January 8

(January 5, 2023) There will be increased traffic around Toyota Stadium on Sunday, January 8, due to the NCAA Championship Football Game which starts at 1 p.m.  Before and after the game, local traffic might experience delay on northbound Dallas Pkwy between Cotton Gin Rd and Main St and may want to use an alternate route to avoid stadium traffic.  In addition, the following roads will be closed during the rush of traffic after the game: 

  • Cotton Gin Rd will be closed underneath the Dallas North Tollway
  • Eastbound Cotton Gin Rd will be closed between Legacy Dr and Dallas Pkwy
  • Northbound, southbound and westbound left turns will be prohibited at Frisco St & All Stars Ave
  • Southbound Frisco St will be closed at Sports Village Rd 

Throughout the morning, moderate traffic is expected on northbound Dallas Pkwy approaching Main St leading up to 1 p.m.  After the game, heavy traffic is expected in all directions at the intersection of Dallas Pkwy and Main St between 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.  Also during that time, all traffic on westbound Cotton Gin Rd will be forced to turn right onto Dallas Pkwy and traffic movements on Frisco St will be restricted as described above. 

When leaving the event, some turning movements will be restricted around Toyota Stadium to maximize the efficiency of outbound traffic. The route you take to exit the area will depend on where you are parked (see attached map).

 As a reminder, drivers can also use the Waze app to get around the delays.  Click here to learn about Waze or install it on your smartphone.
