Road closings for the GOP convention


Where can’t you drive — or ride your bike — during the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.? Just about anywhere around the Xcel Energy Center. Releasing its “second phase” of transportation restrictions, the St. Paul Police Department said the restrictions will start on the Friday before the convention and continue until Saturday after the big show.

Says the release:

  • St. Peter Street: Will be open; no parking, stopping or standing will be allowed
  • Chestnut Street: Southbound lane will be open
  • 10th and 11th streets: Will be open; no parking will be allowed

    A community meeting will be held Wednesday 8-9 a.m. in room 40 of Saint Paul City Hall.

    Alternate transportation plans are being posted at
