TEMPORARY TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS ON STATE, SPY RUN, AND CLINTON ON SUNDAY
March 6, 2015 - A march commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the “Blood Sunday” march in Selma, Ala., will take place Sunday, March 8 at 4 p.m.
The march from North Side High School to Freimann Square will cause temporary lane restrictions on State Boulevard and Clinton Street. Westbound lanes on State, from North Side to Clinton, will be closed to motorists a few minutes before the march begins. Once on Clinton, the march will use the two eastern lanes of Clinton into downtown. The far west lane of Clinton will remain open for emergency vehicles and truck traffic, but other motorists will be re-routed.
Traffic will be halted on Spy Run Avenue for a few minutes as participants cross Spy Run to access Clinton.
The march is expected to take about 40 minutes and streets will reopen to all traffic immediately after the march.
