Road Closures to Hit Philadelphia Two Days Before Convention
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Road closures and highway restrictions will go into effect two full days before the Democratic Convention gets underway in Philadelphia. The Secret Service released a map of the closures on Thursday. The convention is July 25-28, and from July 23 to July 29, a number of closures and restrictions will be in place. Truck traffic will be limited on sections of Interstate 95 and other roads in the region will be closed. A ¾-mile section of Broad Street, the main north-south artery leading to the convention site, will be closed to all but authorized vehicles. It's unclear if that will affect a march that's approved along Broad Street from downtown to a park near the convention. Protests are being allowed in a park across from the convention site.
