Heads up: Important traffic update ahead of Sunday’s Browns game

CLEVELAND, Ohio- The Cleveland Browns announced an important traffic update ahead of this Sunday’s Browns/Bengals game at FirstEnergy Stadium.

According to the Browns, the City of Cleveland announced many major freeway exits around the stadium will be closed Sunday at noon, and traffic around the stadium will be limited to Browns parking pass holders and vehicles dropping off guests with disabilities.

Pass holders and drop-offs will only be able to reach the stadium by use of the North Marginal from East 55th Street.

The changes will allow the City of Cleveland and the Cleveland Police Department to best direct traffic flow on game days. The Browns said that will result in a better experience for fans heading to the game and those heading downtown.

At 11:30am

  • Rt. 2 westbound from I90 westbound will be exited at East 26th St.

 At 12:00pm

  • Rt. 2 westbound exit to East 9th St. will be closed.
