As Minnesota looks forward to hosting the 2018 Super Bowl in downtown Minneapolis, there will be extra traffic and congestion around the University campus.
The University shared “a reminder that while the bulk of activity will take place in the days closest to the game on Sunday, Feb. 4, the Twin Cities region will see additional traffic, road and sidewalk closures, venue construction, building restrictions, and increased security specifically related to Super Bowl events over a multi-week period. We encourage you to plan ahead to limit the impact on your day-to-day routine, and to be mindful of the influx of visitors and activity and allow extra time to safely get where you need to be.”
The University of Minnesota has also provided a website to keep the community updated on how this may impact your experience. We expect to have classes conducted as normal, but please be prepared for detours and extra traffic around the city from Jan. 29-Feb. 7. Please see the website for current information or contact Lab School Director Sheila Williams Ridge at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
