The following information includes road closures and safety information, along with primary entrances, peak traffic times, and additional precautions being taken by public sector departments.

Anticipated Protests and Special Events

From the Milwaukee Fusion Center (STAC):

STAC is aware of at least 3 planned 1st amendment protected event(s) occurring around the time of the GOP Debate within the Downtown Milwaukee area. Currently, there is no specific information available on the attendance for either event. However, each of these events have the potential capability of delaying and/or impeding emergency service vehicle/personnel response and/or access to certain parts of the Downtown Milwaukee area. These events are likely to occur the evening prior to the debate, the evening of the debate, and/or the evening after the debate.

Additional Information:

Multiple groups have indicated an intent to demonstrate. It is confirmed that union groups will be meeting just east of the river at Red Arrow Park and march to the debate site at the Fiserv Forum (1111 Vel R. Phillips). Pro-Trump/pro-Republican groups are expected to be demonstrating closer to the venue as well.
