Due to increased security measures at NFL stadiums, vehicles parking in certain areas of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome parking garages will now be subject to security screenings at every home game. During the course of the 2018 NFL season, SMG New Orleans will implement enhanced vehicle screening of all vehicles that pass through and park within close proximity of the building. Enhanced vehicle screening will consist of an EOD canine sweep. All EOD canine searches will take place outside of the parking garages prior to entry.
Only vehicles parking within close proximity to the stadium will be subject to the enhanced EOD canine search. This would include guests who are parking in the A or B lanes of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. To assist with traffic ingress, any guests with C, D, E, or F parking placards will be directed to the second entrance of each garage to bypass the vehicle screening. These vehicles will be directed around the enhanced vehicle screening since they do not pass through or park within the 100-foot perimeter.
All vehicles that need screening will have parking placards, which clearly designate the need for enhanced screening. These vehicles will have a yellow star on the right hand corner of their placard. The guest’s parking placard also has language on the bottom of their pass, which reads, “Vehicle is subject to screening by security upon entry.”
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our service department at (504) 731-1700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
