Immigration Rights March Tonight Will Impact Traffic Downtown
05/01/2008

Two events are scheduled to begin at approximately the same time this evening which may affect the flow of traffic in the downtown area.

The Immigration Rights March is scheduled to begin at 5:30PM on the Fulton Mall and proceed east on Tulare Street, north onto ‘P’ Street, and west onto Fresno Street – ending back at the Fulton Mall.

Also this evening is the Grizzlies Baseball Game at Chukchansi Park. Fans will be entering downtown at this same time for the game scheduled to begin at 7PM.

Tulare, as well as other streets will be closed intermittently along the March route. The City of Fresno Traffic Division recommends that Grizzlies Game attendees use Fwy 41 ‘O’ Street or Van Ness offramp to enter downtown. Fans can then proceed west on Ventura and then turn north onto either Broadway or H Street to reach the parking facilities.

Fresno Police Department will be controlling traffic and temporary street closures during the March.

The Public’s patience and caution this evening during both events is greatly appreciated.
