DENVER – The Denver Police Department is not allowing vehicles to
enter downtown Denver, according to a tweet sent at around 9:20 p.m. Sunday.
This comes after fans flooded the streets following a 24-10 Super Bowl win for the Denver Broncos over the Carolina Panthers.
DPD says all traffic is being pushed to 15th Street. According to RTD, Mall Ride was temporarily stopped due to large crowds downtown.
The I-25 ramps into downtown Denver were closed at 38th Avenue, Speer Boulevard and 20th and 23rd Streets, according to DPD.

Roads near 19th and Market streets were already closed off as officers worked to ensure Super Bowl watchers get out of the area safely.
9NEWS reporter Nelson Garcia said a couch was set on fire at 29th Avenue and Huron Street following the win.
Fans paraded down Federal Boulevard after the Broncos won their third Super Bowl.

The city has a history of riots following team wins, like the last time the Broncos won the Super Bowl and when the Avs brought home the Stanley Cup.
