Wrestlemania Brings Extra Traffic To Meadowlands
Today will be just like a football game day for many headed to Metlife Stadium for tonight’s Wrestlemania.
Traffic will build all day as the parking lots are already open and the stadium gates open at 4:30 p.m. Fans will be allowed to tailgate in the parking lot before hand. The first Wrestlemania event is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
Heavier than normal traffic will build on Route 3, 120, 17, Patterson Plank Road as well as the New Jersey Turnpike as fans arrive. The event will likely end around 11p.m. and traffic will pick up again on those roads as fans head home.
New Jersey 101.5 has traffic every 15 minutes every hour with instant updates at NJ101.5.
