Poloncarz: Urgent Message for Parking at Bills Game Monday
The Buffalo Bills will play the Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow afternoon at Highmark Stadium. Kickoff is at 4:30 pm and will be the second-to-last wild card playoff game for the NFL this year.
Yes, the game will be held at that time. Both New York Governor Kathy Hochul and Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz announced that there will be no further delays, and this game will be held on Monday at 4:30.
Hochul says weather and travel conditions will not be life-threatening on Monday afternoon. There also should be enough time for clean up, which includes roads, parking lots and the stadium itself.
The driving ban for Grand Island, Amherst, Tonawanda, Clarence and Newstead were lifted at 3:30 pm today. The driving ban is still in effect for Cheektowaga, Lancaster, the City of Buffalo and south towns. That includes Orchard Park.
Despite the fact that there is still a driving ban, it should be lifted by Monday morning. However, the fans who are going to the stadium will be forced to deal with far less spaces for parking.
Because of that, Poloncarz strongly encourages carpooling for the game.
There simply isn't enough time to clear out all the lots. The roads and stadium are the most important.
As for the lake effect snow band, it's still pummeling the south towns. It should move back over the city and into the north towns tonight and early morning hours of Monday.
The weather for the game will be temperatures in the teens, cloudy, light snow chance and nowhere near the wind gusts that ravaged the region the past 48 hours.
Game on in Orchard Park. If the Bills can win, they will host the Kansas City Chiefs next weekend. If the Steelers win, they will travel to Baltimore and play the Ravens.
