PHOENIX – The weather will be pleasant but traffic will be hot and heavy in parts of metro Phoenix this weekend between Super Bowl activities and the WM Phoenix Open.

Super Bowl Events in downtown Phoenix and the big game in Glendale have closed down and/or restricted a number of streets, some not reopening until midweek.

The Super Bowl Experience is set up at two downtown sites – the Phoenix Convention Center and Hance Park. Activities at the convention center end Saturday night; Hance Park hosts a free Super Bowl watch party Sunday,
while the NFL title game is Sunday at State Farm Stadium.

The WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale finishes Sunday.

The good news is there are no scheduled freeway closures. The Arizona Department of Transportation out on hold on roadwork until after the Super Bowl.
