Traffic clogged roads leading to Pittsburgh's North Shore Saturday morning as fans lined up early for the evening Kenny Chesney concert at Heinz Field.

Fans began waiting at 6:30 a.m. for a spot in the parking lots around the stadium, according to Pittsburgh police. By 11:15, most lots around the stadium were filled, sporting a sea of sun umbrellas and tailgating fans.

Traffic backed up on the Parkway West to Carnegie for most of the morning. Traffic moved slowly on Route 65, North Shore Expressway and Route 28 ramps leading to the North Shore.

An officer at Pittsburgh's Zone 1 station said motorists should expect problems through the morning, but traffic patrols were working to move vehicles into lots.

The concert, which also features Eric Church, the Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves begins at 5 p.m.
