Fan Reminders for Steelers-Patriots Game
Fan Reminders For Steelers-Patriots Game
Posted Oct 28, 2011
The Steelers host the New England Patriots at Heinz Field on Sunday, Oct. 30 and kickoff is set for 4:15 p.m. The matchup will be televised on CBS (locally KDKA-TV, channel 2).
Fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid anticipated heavy traffic and last minute crowds at the gates, and to enjoy in-stadium pregame festivities. All gates will open at 2 p.m. and all fans entering Heinz Field will be subject to full pat downs.
The Steelers also encourage fans to arrive early and be patient about entering the stadium. The enhanced security procedures at the stadium gates will increase the comfort and safety of fans at the game, but will require additional time for inspections at the gates. Heinz Field Management introduces new express lanes for fans that don’t have items for inspection at the security check points upon entering the stadium on game days.
The Steelers and Heinz Field management are advising fans attending Sunday’s game about some traffic, access and security matters, including the following stadium policies:
The Steelers and Heinz Field management are warning fans to watch out for counterfeit tickets when attempting to make a purchase from scalpers. Fans looking to purchase tickets are advised to only purchase tickets from the Steelers ticket office or access the team’s online TicketExchange service by logging on to www.steelers.com/ticketexchange or by visiting www.ticketmaster.com. Fans are advised not to purchase paper tickets printed through the TicketExchange service from scalpers because of the possibility of counterfeiting.
ParkingFans without pre-sold parking and cash parkers arriving after 1 p.m., should utilize:
Reserved, pre-sold parking lots around the stadium open at 11 a.m. to game day parkers. Tailgating is permitted in the pre-sold lots surrounding the stadium. Fans should consider using the West End Bridge for access to pre-sold Gold Lot 1, Red 5 Garage and Red 7 Lots, via Reedsdale Street Eastbound, and to pre-sold Gold Lots 2, 3, 4 and 6, via North Shore Drive.
For $5.00, convenient Golden Triangle parking is available at nine Pittsburgh Parking Authority garages, the Mon Wharf (new this year), the Convention Center and the Fifth Avenue Place garage. Parking is also available in the Grant Street Transportation Center garages (entrances on Penn Ave. and 12th Street downtown).
From Golden Triangle parking garages, fans can enjoy a pleasant walk to Heinz Field via the Ft. Duquesne Bridge walkway and sidewalks on the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Fans desiring shuttle service to Heinz Field can park at the Mon Wharf and ride the Molly’s Trolleys (new this year). Fans could also park in the Cultural District and take a boat shuttle from the Allegheny Wharf (see below).
Boat Shuttles from Golden Triangle and Strip DistrictYou can enjoy a boat shuttle ride from the Allegheny Wharf to/from Heinz Field. Access the Allegheny Wharf via steps at the south end of the Clemente Bridge near Ft. Duquesne Boulevard. Pittsburgh Water Limo boat shuttles begin three hours prior to kickoff. Return shuttles begin at the end of the third quarter and continue until one hour after the game concludes.
From the Strip District, 23rd Street area, to/from Heinz Field, shuttle boat rides are available 2˝ hours and 1˝ hours prior to kickoff. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Visit www.pittsburghwaterlimo.com for additional information. Parking is available in the public garage at 24th Street ($6.00).
Station Square Boat ShuttlesPark at Station Square ($10.00) and ride the Gateway Clipper Fleet Steelers shuttle boats ($5.00 per person, each way).
Traffic AlertsPennDOT, the Pittsburgh city police and other partners are working with the Steelers and Heinz Field management to facilitate event access and to provide tips that will help with your game day commute:
Post-Game TrafficRoute 28 Alternate Routes to Consider:
One lane northbound on Route 28 North (between the 31st Street Bridge and the 40th Street Bridge) has been closed for construction. Fans who normally exit via Route 28 North, may want to consider the following exit routes:
Route 65 North (and access to route 51 North via the McKees Rocks Bridge) is under construction from Chateau Street to California Avenue. Traffic is detoured via one lane ramp to California Avenue Westbound. An alternate route to Route 65 North and I-79 South is via the HOV to I-279 North; then South on Camp Horne Road (Exit 7) to Route 65 North at Emsworth.
West End Bridge
• If you are in the right lane, do NOT change lanes;
• At the south end of the bridge, keep moving and turn right on red;
• Then proceed in all directions:
* SOUTH on Routes 51, 19; 50 (via route 60) or Greentree Road.
* WEST or EAST on I-376; and NORTH on Route 60 (via Steuben Street) to I-79;
Parkway West (I-376 West), Alternate Routes to Consider:
Golden Triangle -- Ft. Duquesne Blvd., eastbound (postgame only), Stanwix Street to Sixth, is CLOSED following the game.
Trucks Prohibited from North Shore Before, During and After GameTrucks (except those approved by police for deliveries and those displaying North Shore Pre-Sold Parking permits and traveling directly to their permitted lot or garage) are prohibited from the North Shore Streets Area (Reedsdale Street, Casino Drive, North Shore Drive, and Mazeroski Way) from three hours before until two hours after the game.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
