Police will severely restrict foot traffic in and round Kenmore Square and Boylston Street tonight.

“Kenmore Square is one area that will be shut down after the third quarter of play in the Super Bowl,” Police Commissioner William Evans said in a letter sent late last week to the area’s students

In the past, students have celebrated past championships in Kenmore. After the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, for the first time in 86 years, for instance, people set fires on Lansdowne Street and flipped cars near Fenway.

Boston Police will have extra patrols out this evening, monitoring licensed premise locations “as well as those neighborhoods where we typically see an increase in activity.”

“Should you behave in a way that warrants the intervention of police because of misconduct, your name will be turned over to your respective Dean of Students for appropriate discipline,” Evans wrote.
