Cardinals preseason game to cause heavy West Valley traffic Thursday
PHOENIX — The second Arizona Cardinals preseason game in as many weeks will cause heavy traffic Thursday in the West Valley.
The Cardinals play the Oakland Raiders at 5 p.m., with parking lots scheduled to open at 1 p.m.
The Arizona Department of Transportation says drivers who are not going to the game should avoid the busiest stadium travel routes — Interstate 10 and Loop 101 — if possible.
Those attending the game traveling from north Scottsdale or the East Valley are advised to use Loop 101 westbound and southbound across the North Valley and Glendale in an effort to avoid the I-10 westbound, according to ADOT.
