This advisory from Cowboys Stadium and the City of Arlington:
The Cowboys and the City of Arlington have coordinated the flow of traffic to make travel as seamless as possible for fans the 7:30 p.m. kickoff for Monday, September 26th.
We encourage fans to arrive early and be patient entering the stadium. The enhanced security procedures at the stadium gates recommended by the NFL this season will increase the comfort and safety of fans at the game, but will require additional time for inspections at the gates. We hope fans will come early, enjoy our tailgating tradition, and head to the stadium gates earlier than they have in the past.While there are no major changes to the roadways, fans should allow travel time to Cowboys Stadium due to increased traffic in the Entertainment District. Fans should use the Cowboys Stadium parking and traffic site: DallasCowboysMaps.com and print their directions for arrival and departure. Following the conclusion of the game, the East bound HOV lane on I-30 will be open for traffic returning to the central Dallas area.
Parking lots will open at 3:30 p.m. Stadium Plazas and Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
