President Donal Trump will be hosting a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire on Thursday. He'll be speaking at the Southern New Hampshire University arena which is right in downtown.
In coordination with Federal, State and other local assets, there are going to be street closures throughout most of the afternoon and evening in the areas immediately surrounding the SNHU Arena. Those closures at this time are as follows:
Beginning at 2 p.m.:
- Elm St closed from Central St to Auburn St. Limited access to Elm St from Auburn St to Valley St will be for local business traffic only.
- Lake Ave closed from Elm St to Pine St
- Chestnut St closed from Central St to Auburn St
- Granite St closed from Elm St to Canal St with Parking Garage access at the Doubletree Hotel coming from Granite St Eastbound.
NO PARKING WILL BE ENFORCED ON ALL OF THESE CLOSED ROADS AFTER THE TIME SPECIFIED. IF YOU LEAVE A VEHICLE PARKED IN ANY OF THESE AREAS DURING THE CLOSURE, YOUR VEHICLE MAY BE TOWED.
Old Granite St, which can be accessed from Granite St eastbound just after the intersection of Canal St, will be posted for handicapped parking and access only. This parking will be on-street only. There is no overflow location at this time. Old Granite St is directly across the street from the SNHU Arena.
Parking on city streets, with the exception of those closed as a result of this event, will be open to the public. Most of the downtown parking is metered parking. There are no designated lots or specified parking areas for this event. The local parking garages are expected to be operating as they normally do.
At this time there is NO shuttle service for this event. Manchester Transit Authority (MTA) will continue to operate their service while working around the road closures for the event. Please be cognizant of this as you travel to the area.
There may be additional closures as the day progresses and as the needs of the Secret Service dictate. There will be intermittent closures for the Presidential Motorcade as the beginning and closing of the event. Barricades will be utilized in and around the SNHU Arena to cordon off areas that will be restricted to Law Enforcement personnel only.
