PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The Pittsburgh Public Schools will have a two-hour delay on Monday.

School officials cite student safety as the reason.

The district had a delay the last time the Steelers were in the Super Bowl.

Ebony Pugh, spokeswoman for the district, told the Post-Gazette the district is concerned about students traveling with people who may have been up late for the game.

Meanwhile, state police say they’ll triple their normal patrols while local departments also plan to step up their enforcement efforts on Super Bowl Sunday.

PennDOT officials say 55 alcohol-related crashes were recorded in the region the last time the Steelers were in the Super Bowl.
