The City of Dallas is hosting the National Rifle Association Convention from May 3 – 6, 2018 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center. The convention is expecting about 80,000 attendees during the four day event. The Dallas Police Department is expecting numerous protests during this four day convention. As a result, there will be several road closures in the downtown area.
On Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m, Young Street between Ervay Street and Griffin Street will be closed and South Akard Street between Canton Street and Young Street will also be closed during the same time period. Additional roads may be closed as needed.
The department expects there will also be temporary road closures throughout downtown on Friday due to the arrival of several dignitaries. Expect delays if you are travelling through downtown this weekend and seek alternate routes during the times listed.
