Expect traffic, parking changes related to Super Bowl 50

Sections of Stanford's Varsity and Maples lots will be closed to accommodate practices for Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers arrived in the Bay Area yesterday for Super Bowl 50, which will be held at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara Sunday, Feb. 7.

The Broncos will be using Stanford University athletic facilities for the team's pre-Super Bowl practices starting today, Feb. 1, and running through Saturday, Feb. 6, according to the university.

All practices will be closed to the public, but campus parking will likely be affected throughout the week, officials said. There may also be some traffic challenges near the university, officials warned.

Parking changes on campus include:

• Seventy-two commuter, visitor and event parking spaces will be closed at the eastern end of the Varsity Lot (L-97)

• Seven "A" parking spaces in the Maples Lot (L-93), including bus spaces will be reserved for the NFL

• The Galvez Lot (L-96) will be open to "A" and "C" permit holders
