Traffic headaches expected in central Denver for Broncos, Rockies, concerts this weekend

DENVER -- Officials are expecting congested roads in central Denver this weekend due to several large sporting events and concerts.

The Rockies play the Dodgers at Coors Field Saturday and Sunday. The Broncos face the Seahawks at Broncos Stadium at Mile High on Sunday afternoon.

Bruno Mars is performing at the Pepsi Center Saturday night. Maroon 5 will perform at the arena on Sunday night.

The Denver Police Department recommended using public transportation to avoid delays. RTD is increasing service through its BroncosRide program, which provides direct bus service from around the metro area to the stadium.

Many of the bus pick-up locations are at Park-n-Ride lots.

"We drop passengers off and they walk right into the game. After the game, they pick up the bus at the same location," said spokesperson Lisa Trujillo.

Security will be present at the platforms. The BroncosRide service costs $9 round trip.

RTD is also increasing its light rail service for the Broncos game.

Those biking to the Broncos and Rockies games can find free bike valet at Gate 4 of Broncos Stadium and near gates A, B and E at Coors Field.
