Verizon Arena is expecting a full house for Friday night’s Winterjam concert.

And, as a result, arena officials and the North Little Rock Police Department are expecting traffic problems downtown.

A sellout crowd of 16,000 is expected to attend and doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for the show that starts at 7 p.m. but arena officials are expecting an early arriving crowd for the show.

Police are advising commuters to take alternate routes or avoid the area that afternoon.
