Are We Prepared for Bad Super Bowl Weather?

An estimated 400,000 visitors are expected to come to the New Jersey/New York region during Super Bowl week in February, and about 80,000 people will attend the big game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. Transportation and Super Bowl officials on Wednesday said if the weather doesn’t cooperate, they are prepared.

“The expertise of our stadium and street snow removal crews will ensure that all visitors can travel safely to events throughout the week and enjoy the game February 2,” said Alfred F. Kelly, Jr., President and CEO of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee. “A snowstorm can hit at any time, but that doesn’t mean people should not be able to move around.”

Super Bowl XLVIII will not only be the first cold-weather championship NFL game to be held in an open-air stadium; it’ll also act as the first-ever “mass transit Super Bowl.” The number of stadium parking spaces has been cut by more than half.

“MetLife Stadium has handled multiple snow storms since opening in 2010, and just last week, seamlessly handled a storm prior to the Giants Seahawks game,” said Brad Mayne, President and CEO of MetLife Stadium.
