Super Bowl fever has infected the nation this weekend and many people from the DFW area are traveling south for the Big Game on Sunday.
Several road closures downtown and near NRG Stadium may affect traffic for drivers this week. Streets will be closed near George R. Brown Convention Center and Discovery Green for the NFL and Super Bowl LIVE.

Drivers can also expect Kirby Drive adjacent to NRG to be closed from February 2 to February 6. And Murworth Drive west of the stadium will be closed on game day.
