NEW ORLEANS - Saints fans attending this Friday night's preseason home opener for the team will notice enhanced security measures and the facility's officials strongly urge people to arrive early for the game.
According to a news release, all fans attending games will be subject to screening by a hand-held metal detector. This procedure will replace the 'pat downs' that some fans received.
Other security measures, including the checking of bags, will continue.
Dome officials also advise patrons that streetcar construction at the corner of Poydras and Loyola will probably cause some traffic delays.
