With 2 days to go before Super Bowl, Houstonians, international and out-of-town visitors stopped by NRG Stadium as part of their Super Bowl experience. No Super Bowl ticket was needed and it’s one of the free things you can do. The public is not allowed inside the stadium as security tightens above and around NRG. Expect road closures around NRG tonight and through Super Bowl weekend into Monday.
The Maya family visiting from the Yucatan made the trip to NRG Thursday afternoon for a last chance and close-up view of where the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons will play on Sunday, February 5th. Superstar Lady Gaga will perform during the Super Bowl Half Time Show. Country singer and songwriter Luke Bryan will sing the national anthem.
If you’re going to NRG Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, you must have a parking permit and game ticket for stadium parking. Kirby Drive will be closed between Westridge Street and McNee Road. Traffic will flow in one direction on Holly Hall Street, between Fannin Street and Almeda Road before and after the game. All other roads around the stadium will be open.
