An essential addition to the growing list of guides for Houstonians on where not to go this weekend: the above map of road closures around the George R. Brown Convention Center district. Both red shading and cross-hatching mark the temporary carless zones, while a dashed black line shows the location of the perimeter fence for area events. Meanwhile, miles away at actual Super Bowl location NRG Stadium, other street closures were planned to go into effect yesterday evening (and are scheduled to last through Monday morning):
- Previously on Swamplot: Bridges Over 59 To Don Super Bowl Team Colors for the Weekend; Steering Clear of the Super Bowl Crowds, Whether They Show Up or Not; ESPN Moves Super Bowl Shows from Midtown Park to Downtown Parking Lot Next to Salvation Army HQ

I’m going to avoid these places like a plague ….. if fact, I am leaving town till the madness ends as there are enough crazies even without the game. Ciao!
