6:09 pm
crowds. they expect a million people to come by. crowd control a big issue. >> one of the reasons we have opened super bowl city earlier than any super bowl has opened to fan village is for local residents have an opportunity to come and see it before all the out-of-towners arrive. so whether you have 10 or 20 or 30,000 people at any time flowing through the village we are not compressing that into three days. >> reporter: and, of course, traffic and transportation will keep planners up at night. >> congestion of getting people in and out are always going to be the things that are on our mind and encouraging people to make sure that they arrive at the routes that we anticipate for them. because of the justin herman plaza's location on the embarcadero, we are going to reroute traffic in different ways in which people can accommodate their use of public transit as much as they can. >> reporter: no matter what, moving around the city that week will be very, very tough. all right. $40million is all privately raised. they are going to give 25% of
