With the Indians playing the Tigers at 7:05 Thursday night, and the Browns taking on the Rams at 8:00, things could get a little messy downtown. The Browns issued a statement regarding parking and getting to the stadium. “With an Indians game also taking place downtown, and people leaving work on a weekday, fans are strongly encouraged to arrive early, leaving enough time to park at least 30 minutes prior to the 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Construction workers are resurfacing East 9th Street, which will affect inbound and outbound traffic. Please be patient and exercise caution. Since there is a chance of rain in the forecast, please advise fans to wear rain gear. Umbrellas will not be permitted into the stadium. In an effort to enhance public safety and improve stadium access, the NFL has implemented a new policy that limits the sizes and types of bags that fans can bring into the stadium. Fans are encouraged to leave bags at home or in their cars. Only clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that do not exceed dimensions of 12 by 6 by 12 inches will be allowed. Fist-size clutch purses or a one-gallon clear, plastic freezer bag also are allowed. Backpacks, duffle bags, suitcases, seat cushions, briefcases, coolers and comparable containers are not permitted. More information: www.NFL.com/allclear.” Those who went to Family Night last Saturday know that traffic was certainly an issue, and that event had just over 24 thousand fans.
