Arrive Early to the Stadium Gates 

Buffalo, NY – Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports game day traffic patterns will be in effect for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Drivers, please adjust your speed and provide ample space between you and the vehicle in front of you due to predicted wet road conditions.  In addition, drivers are urged to pay close attention to pedestrians to and from the stadium.  As the days become increasingly shorter, there is less daylight, and pedestrians become more difficult to see; please drive with caution. 


  • 7:45 a.m. – Abbott Road closes to vehicle traffic between the entrance to Lot 4 (north end of the closure) and Lot 2 (south end of the closure).  All through traffic will be diverted at that time. 

  • 9:00 a.m. – New Era Field parking lots open; do not park/wait on the shoulder of the roads.  Deputies will be focusing on eliminating excessive consumption of alcohol and individuals possessing glass bottles.  In addition, fans and tailgaters are reminded that the Fan Code of Conduct, which promotes responsible tailgating, extends to the parking lots, and that individuals need a game ticket to be in the parking lot.  Any games or activities that impeded traffic flow will not be permitted.  

  • 3:30 p.m. (or midway thru the 4th quarter) – Route 20a (a.k.a. Big Tree Road) will be closed to westbound traffic from Abbott Road to the Route 219 overpass.  All vehicles leaving the stadium and private lots along Rte. 20A must travel east.
