Why your drive around Orchard Park could change Friday

Posted at 6:21 AM, Aug 03, 2018

The Bills are bringing training camp to New Era Field on Friday, so the Erie County Sheriff's Office is closing roads in Orchard Park to accommodate fans flocking to the stadium. 

So when will it impact your evening commute? 

The closures begin at 3:15PM, along parts of Abbott Road near the stadium. Deputies will block off the road between the Lot 4 and Lot 2 entrances to vehicle traffic. The closures will continue all evening until practice is over around 10:30.

Parking Lots 1, 2, 5, 6 and 7 will open at 4:15PM, and at 5:15, Gates 2, 3, 5 and 6 will open. 

The sheriff's office also wants to remind you that the NFL's bag policy is in effect. 

Practice starts at 6:15. You can still get tickets at the gate.
