PHILADELPHIA – The City is very excited for our NFC Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, as they make their way to Arizona for Super Bowl LVII this Sunday, February 12 at 6:30 p.m. As it was for the NFC Championship game, the City’s main focus is public safety and putting those efforts into place ahead of Super Bowl Weekend.

“The Eagles’ road to Super Bowl LVII fills us with hope, pride and joy,” said Mayor Jim Kenney. “With the team and management already in Arizona for the big game, we want to encourage fans to cheer on safely and responsibly as we send them some brotherly love from home.”

“As the City of Philadelphia prepares to cheer on our Eagles, the Philadelphia Police Department, along with other city, local, state, and federal agencies will be on hand to ensure that fans are able to celebrate safely,” said Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw. “We are looking forward to another great Eagles game. Go Birds!”

Parking Restrictions and Car Relocation

Beginning on Friday, residents and businesses may begin to see “Temporary No Parking Signs” along the South Broad Street corridor and around City Hall.

The “No Parking Zone” will go into effect on Sunday beginning at noon and vehicles parked in these locations during posted hours may be relocated. If you believe your car has been relocated, call the police district of the area where your car was parked.

Road Closures 

At the conclusion of Sunday’s game, temporary traffic closures will be put into place to maintain public safety in the vicinity of City Hall and surrounding Center City streets between 11th and 20th Streets and Spring Garden and Locust Streets. In addition, the 676 ramp at Broad Street, east and west, will be temporarily closed.

Travel delays can be expected and motorists are advised to avoid the area by using alternate routes, and allow for extra driving time when traveling in the vicinity.

Please follow all posted signs, detours and traffic control devices.

Public Transportation

At the conclusion of Sunday’s game, temporary SEPTA route detours may be put into place and service is subject to change. Customers should refer to System Status regularly for updates to routing throughout the day.

Public Safety Information

Throughout the day, the City will provide law-enforcement support, traffic control, and emergency medical services at key locations for public safety. In addition, the public should expect congestion in these areas.

Additional protocols for the upcoming game are being evaluated by the Philadelphia Police Department and our public safety partners, including the greasing of poles, and measures to reduce the risk of injury and public property damage. For public safety reasons, the City is not disclosing if/when the poles will be greased. Based on prior experience in these situations, and to control the flow of crowds, barricades have been put into place at key locations for public safety.
