The Cowboys and the City of Arlington have coordinated the flow of traffic to make travel as seamless as possible to fans for the 7:30 p.m. kickoff on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
The team urges fans to leave early and expect heavy traffic as the Texas Rangers host the Minnesota Twins with first pitch scheduled for 6:05 p.m. on the same day.
For arrival and departure, the HOV lane on I-30 W will be available. Cowboys fans that have pre-purchased parking in the Ranger Lots A-B and M will have their passes honored. However, with the Rangers game, it is suggested that you allow extra time for access to those lots.
While there are no major changes to the roadways, fans should allow additional travel time to Cowboys Stadium due to increased traffic in the Entertainment District. Fans should use the Cowboys Stadium parking and traffic site www.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 2:30 p.m. The East Plaza will open at 3:30 p.m. for a tailgate party open to all ticketed patrons; West Plaza and Stadium Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
