Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Sunday's sold-out game between the Titans and New England Patriots at LP Field will bring heavy traffic into the downtown area Sunday morning.

Stadium parking lots will open at 8 a.m. to Titans fans with parking passes. Gates to LP Field will open at 10 a.m. Kick-off is at 12 Noon.

In an effort to improve traffic flow this year, game day staff will actively check for parking passes on vehicles as they enter the stadium campus.

Vehicles without parking passes will be turned away.

Fans without parking passes can park downtown and walk to LP Field, or take advantage of InShuttle Transportation's shuttle bus service.

Fans who park north Broadway should walk across the Woodland Street Bridge, just north of LP Field. Fans who park along and south of Broadway should utilize the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge, located south of stadium.
