|Airport Reopens, Super Bowl Week Freeze Lingers
|FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- The airport that will bring thousands of Super Bowl travelers to Texas has reopened as the Dallas-Fort Worth area braces for at least three days of subfreezing temperatures.
A spokesman said Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, one of the nation's busiest, partially reopened Tuesday morning. It was shut down for about an hour.
The National Weather Service says freezing temperatures will linger through at least Thursday of the first Super Bowl week in North Texas. Pittsburgh and Green Bay play Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
A winter storm dumped layers of freezing rain on Dallas-area roads, closing schools and snarling traffic.
