In the interest of general public safety, Boston Police will be restricting access to several locations in the city both due to the Super Bowl and recent blizzard. Traffic restrictions cover many streets in/around the Brighton area, Kenmore Square, Northeastern, Faneuil Hall and North Station areas. Drivers are asked to pay close attention to signage.

“We are taking steps to ensure a safe and fun Super Bowl,” said Mayor Walsh. “We need everyone else to do their part, and celebrate in a respectful and responsible manner. I look forward to rooting on the Patriots this Sunday.”

Boston Police are engaging with local businesses to ensure that alcohol laws and capacity rules will be strictly enforced, and to be on the lookout for excessive drinking and disorderly conduct. Boston Police are also working with university officials to remind students to root for their team while still being mindful of their actions and the safety of others. Students behaving in a way that warrants the intervention of police will have their information turned over to their respective Dean of Students for appropriate discipline.

In addition, the City encourages fans traveling to Boston to watch the game to use public transportation when possible and never to drink and drive. Boston Police will have officers on duty, focused specifically on DUI enforcement.

The Boston Transportation Department will post signs for “Tow Zone / No Stopping” for Super Bowl Sunday; signs will be posted for Sunday, February 1 with towing beginning at 2:00 p.m.
