Road closures for GOP town hall in downtown Milwaukee will impact residents, evening commute

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) is partnering with the Department of Public Works (DPW) and other local stakeholders to inform downtown Milwaukee residents, visitors and workers of traffic and pedestrian impacts due to the GOP town hall meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 29th, 2016 at the Riverside Theatre, located at 116 W. Wisconsin Ave.

The public should be aware of the following, as traffic patterns will affect downtown activities and the Tuesday evening commute:

    The CNN GOP town hall event is a ticketed event, is sold out, and only those with tickets may enter the event.

    If your Tuesday evening plans include attending other various downtown events, such as the Milwaukee Admirals game or theater performances, please take notice of these street/sidewalk closures, and that parking will be in high demand. Plan ahead by allowing extra travel time, be prepared to walk several blocks to your events, or use public transportation.

    MPD will have extra officers in the area to ensure safety and security, and to assist the public during the town hall event.
