PHOENIX — The Arizona Cardinals hosting a Thursday evening game in Glendale will clog up multiple West Valley freeways at rush hour, according to state transportation officials.

Heavy traffic is expected on westbound Interstate 10 in Phoenix and the Loop 101 Agua Fria Freeway in Glendale ahead of the 5:15 p.m. kickoff against the New Orleans Saints at State Farm Stadium.

The city of Glendale is closing northbound Loop 101 on-ramps at Indian School Road, Camelback Road and Cardinals Way from 2 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. to assist with traffic slow. The southbound Loop 101 on-ramp at Glendale Avenue will also be closed.

Fans coming from the southeast Valley should use the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway to avoid I-10 traffic in downtown Phoenix.

Those heading to the game, which will feature the roof open for the first time this season, should arrive early if possible. Stadium parking lots will open at 1 p.m.

Expect traffic to continue even after the game ends.

Southbound Loop 101 off-ramps at Cardinals Way and Camelback Road will be closed from 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. So will the Loop 101 ramps at Maryland Avenue from 5:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
