Community Concerns and Traffic Advisory

Despite the excitement surrounding the event, some residents have expressed concerns about the noise levels from past stadium events. Residents claim that the loud activities significantly affect their quality of life, as the sounds can be heard within their apartments. Additionally, the closure of South Frank E. Rodgers Blvd during events at Red Bull Arena has been problematic, causing inconvenience for residents trying to return home.

The Harrison Police Department is expected to issue a Traffic Bulletin to manage the increased traffic and ensure public safety during the event.
