Traffic and Parking

  • ARRIVE EARLY to avoid traffic and congestion in the Arlington area.
  • The I-30 TEXpress Lane is open and available for use. Look for the left lane exit for the "Express Lane" as you pass the Highway 360 exit on I-30 westbound from Dallas and East.
  • The I-30 managed lane from Dallas is open and available for westbound and eastbound traffic. Tolls apply; look for access from the main lanes.
  • Due to the I-30/Highway 360 interchange construction project, you will begin to notice changes on AT&T Stadium event days. Below are two current impacts of this project affecting outbound traffic.
    • TxDOT has modified the access to the TEXpress ramp serving AT&T Way/Baird Farm bridge. For outbound traffic, this modification will slow outbound traffic traveling or using the AT&T Way bridge or the Collins Avenue ramp to eastbound I-30.
    • Lamar Avenue will be reduced to one lane eastbound to Highway 360 and may be congested. We suggest using Brown Blvd. or Green Oaks Blvd. as an alternative.
  • Abram Street is under construction between Collins Street and Highway 360. This will affect outbound traffic on Collins Street South to Abram Street from Lots 11, 12, 13 and 14. As an alternative, we suggest using Collins Street South to Park Row; Turn left on Park Row to Highway 360 or further east to George Bush Toll Highway (Highway 161).
  • We recommend that you use for your travels to AT&T Stadium. This website provides you the best route from your point of origin to your pre-purchased or selected cash parking lot.

Food and Beverage

Entering the Building

  • Please enter the building at one of the four entrances (A, E, F or K).  Your ticket will state the entrance that provides you easy access to your suite.
  • We encourage fans to arrive early and be patient when entering the stadium.  Enhanced security procedures, including hand-held metal detectors will be present at stadium gates.  This increased security procedure is required by the NFL and will increase the comfort and safety of fans at the game, but will require additional time for inspections at the gates. 

Entering your Suite

  • A suite attendant will allow guests in the suite with proof of ticket for the specified suite.  Please have your ticket with you at all times.
  • When guests exit your suite and need to get back in during the event, they may place the UNLOCK magnet over the door lock to prevent the door from locking.
