The closures of the streets will begin at 8 p.m. Wednesday. 


The streets impacted by the closures include: 

  • First Avenue North from Sixth Street North to Eighth Street North. Second Avenue North from Fifth Street North to 10th Street North.
  • Sixth Street North between First Avenue North and Second Avenue North.
  • Seventh Street North between Hennepin Avenue and 10th Street North; access to parking ramp will be provided.
  • Twins Way between Seventh Street North and 10th Street North.

The city said some on-street parking will be restricted to help with traffic issues.

Trump campaign says Minneapolis rally approved, will not pay additional funds

"The City of Minneapolis has worked closely with other government agencies and partners on a traffic management plan to minimize disruption to traffic and parking as much as possible," a statement from the city read. 

Metro Transit will continue regular service with detours. 

Because of the rally, scooters and Nice Ride bikes will be out of service Thursday as well.
