Heavy traffic expected downtown for Suns playoff game, D-backs tilt
PHOENIX — Another busy night of sports in downtown Phoenix is expected to lead to increased traffic Tuesday.
The Phoenix Suns host the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals at 6 p.m. at Phoenix Suns Arena.
Forty minutes later across the street, the Arizona Diamondbacks will throw the first pitch against the Milwaukee Brewers at Chase Field.
Valley Metro is offering free light rail rides for those who have tickets to the Suns’ game.
The Suns have offered suggestions to fans on how to easily get to parking near the arena depending on what part of town they’re coming from.
Those coming from the East Valley are asked to use Interstate 10 to Seventh Street and then find parking on the east side of the arena.
West Valley fans should use I-10 to Seventh Avenue and then park on the west side of the arena.
Southeast Valley fans are asked to use Interstate 17 to Seventh Street then park on the southeast side of the arena.
There’s at least one more chance for both teams to play at home on the same night during the Suns’ playoff run.
The Suns would host the Clippers on July 2 in a potential Game 7 at 6 p.m. while the D-backs are scheduled to play the San Francisco Giants at 6:40 p.m.
