HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Drivers headed through downtown Hartford Friday night may be in for some traffic.

An estimated crowd of about 15,000 people is expected for a G-Eazy and Logic concert at the Xfinity Theater.

Police said they expect traffic to become a bit congested on Interstates 91 and 84 on Friday night.

Traffic isn't they only concern, they said.

AMR Ambulance said it responded to a larger than normal number of calls during last week's concert for Snoop Dogg.

The calls were related to alcohol and drugs.

For Friday's concert, AMR said there will be 40 paramedics from Hartford and surrounding areas there as a precaution.

The parking lot at the theater opens at 4 p.m. and the gates open at 5 p.m.

The concert itself is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
