By order of the United States Secret Service, parts of downtown Kansas City, Mo., will be closed tomorrow, July 24, while President Donald Trump attends private events in the area.

After the morning rush hour, police will cordon off the area surrounding the downtown Convention Center District. Everything should be reopened by the evening rush hour. Pedestrian and vehicle traffic will not be allowed in or around these areas. Parking garages and lots in these areas will not be available.

Police have worked with The Downtown Council to advise affected businesses and residents. Office workers in the area who typically walk to lunch will be unable to do so during this time.

Because the President is attending private events, there will be no opportunities for public access or viewing during his visit. Protesters will be allowed at 13th and Washington.

Further inquiries should be directed to the White House Press Office at 202-456-9570.
