Road closures to hit Philadelphia two days before Democratic Convention

Philadelphia Pennsylvania

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.
