Super Bowl 53 Road Closures

Super Bowl 53 is just days away and is expected to bring hundreds of thousands of visitors and more than usual traffic to Atlanta.

Commuters should expect travel schedules to be impacted both in advance of and well after the game.  Security measures around the game will require road closures, some of which are already in place.

The Georgia Department of Transportation has provided a list of road closures to help drivers navigate areas surrounding the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Road Closures 

Another reason why MARTA may be “smarta:” road closures. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive is closed between Northside Drive and Centennial Olympic Park Drive until Feb. 7. Baker Street between Centennial Olympic Park Drive and Luckie Street is closed until Feb. 8. Mitchell Street between Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Elliot Street; and Mangum Street between Markham and Foundry streets will also be closed until Feb. 7.

Andrew Young International Boulevard will be closed between Marietta Street and Centennial Olympic Park Drive starting Wednesday until Feb. 7.

Other road closures include Peachtree Street between Ponce De Leon Avenue and 3rd Street beginning 1 a.m. Feb. 1. The closure will end 5 p.m. Feb. 3.

One southbound lane on Northside Drive will be closed from Jan. 26 to Feb. 2 so contractors can build a security fence surrounding the perimeter of Mercedes-Benz Stadium in preparation for the game.

Northside Drive between Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive will be closed Feb. 2 -4. After game day, a southbound lane on Northside Drive will be closed until Feb. 7 while contractors break down and remove the security fence. Both southbound lanes will also close each night.
