The NFL is more powerful than any government entity in the USA.

What boggles my mind is the bridge is going to be open for credentialed Super Bowl staffers and the media...but the road it goes over is going to be closed, anyway.

So why would they walk the entire length of this bridge with it's curly q's instead of just crossing a street that won't have any cars on it?

Can't risk rubbing shoulders with the plebeians attending the SB.

They're afraid all the pedestrian congestion will frighten the unicorns pulling their golden chariots.

Could it be the have to transport a lot of equipment on wheeled dollies they don't want the general public to have an opportunity to get handsy with?
