HUNTSVILLE — Several streets in downtown Huntsville will be closed Friday from about 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. for the visit by President Donald Trump to a campaign rally for Sen. Luther Strange at the Von Braun Center.

Monroe Street between Clinton Avenue and Williams Avenue will be closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, according to a Huntsville Police Department release. The parking garages at the VBC will be closed, so visitors will have to find alternate parking, police said.

The city parking garage between Monroe Street and Church Street will be open for parking but must be entered from Church Street. There will also be parking available in the other garage and public parking areas around downtown.

There will be no pedestrians allowed on Monroe Street or the sidewalk along the street between the parking garage and Williams Avenue, according to the release.

The rally will begin at 7 p.m.

The Republican U.S. Senate primary runoff election between Strange and Roy Moore is Tuesday.
