Traffic Alert - October 22 Vikings Game Street Closures Update

The City of Minneapolis will close streets around US Bank Stadium for Sunday’s Noon Minnesota Vikings game.

Beginning at 6:00am Sunday, the City will close:
• Chicago Avenue, from Fourth Street to Sixth Street.
• Norm McGrew Place from Third Street to Fourth Street.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday, the City will close:
• Fourth Street from Park Avenue to Interstate 35W.

These street closings are for traffic safety and security needs related to a large stadium event. All streets will reopen about one hour after the completion of the game.

Metered spaces change for events
Prior to the game, metered parking spaces on streets surrounding U.S. Bank Stadium will switch from hourly rates to event rates. Starting at 9am, event rate spaces will require a flat fee of $25, which will cover parking costs for the entire game. Anyone starting a parking session after 1pm will use hourly rates. To find out which streets have event rate parking use the interactive parking meter map.

All of the City’s parking pay stations and the MPLS Parking app on a smartphone (iPhone or Android device) will automatically charge the rate in effect.

Drivers should follow all signed hours of enforcement, time limits and other parking restrictions. Please watch for heavy pedestrian traffic along streets close to the stadium.
