Roads Closed for St. Patrick's Day Celebrations
With the St. Patty's Day festivities downtown, there will be some road closures.
Johnny's Runnin' of the Green begins on Exchange Street, turns east on Ford Street, then proceeds south on Wilson Boulevard to Fraternity Road. The runners will then turn around and reverse their route back to the Blue Cross Arena.
Those roads are expected to reopen by 10:30 a.m.
Groups will then start staging along East Avenue around 11 a.m., which will slow traffic in the area. The roads along the parade route will close at 12:30, starting at East and Alexander, then Main Street to Plymouth and on to Broad.
RTS buses will also be affected between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Anyone with questions about bus routes can call the RTS customer service department at (585) 288-1700.
