Tomorrow's Downtown Events May Cause Delays for Motorists
October 18, 2013
Motorists traveling through downtown tomorrow should expect some delays given the number of activities taking place. Several events including the Downtown Marketplace, Habitat for Humanity's Chili-Fest and Florida A&M University's Homecoming parade are planned for the downtown area this Saturday, Oct. 19.
The following roads will be closed beginning around 7 a.m.:
- Macomb Street from Tennessee Street to Brevard Street
- West Tennessee Street from Macomb Street to North Duval Street
- Pensacola Street from North Duval Street to Macomb Street
These road closures may also affect immediate side streets. Motorists traveling from the west side of town may want to consider taking Tharpe or Gaines streets to Monroe Street thereby avoiding the road closures.
All roads should be open by noon. Motorists are encouraged to use caution and obey signage.
StarMetro customers should also expect some delays as a result of the road closures. Click here to view the detours (PDF).
