Arrivals: Drivers will access Davidson Street from either S. 2nd Street or S. 5th Street. They are to proceed west on Davidson to the taxi lane on S. 1st Street between the Korean War Veterans Bridge and the Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge. Drivers are instructed to drop off passengers in the taxi lane and then leave via Victory Lane. There is no waiting.

Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge

The Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge, which connects East Nashville to downtown, will be open to eastbound and westbound traffic until the beginning of mass egress.  At the beginning of the fourth quarter, all lanes of the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge will be open to westbound traffic only, which should more quickly disperse congestion around Nissan Stadium.

Bag Restrictions

Those attending the game are reminded of the NFL’s league-wide restrictions, implemented in 2013, on what can be brought into stadiums.  Anything larger than a clutch style purse must be a clear plastic bag, medical items excluded.  Nissan Stadium security staff will be enforcing the bag policy.  For further information on the bag restrictions, visit http://www.nfl.com/qs/allclear/index.jsp
