Our department has received information of several scheduled protests pertaining to the Ferguson verdict and other cases throughout the country. The department is organizing and developing a plan to address the traffic issues that will arise from these events. They will be organizing the demonstrators at the Torch of Friendship (Biscayne Blvd between 3- 4 street eastside). Here are the dates and times:
· Friday December 12, 2014 @ 5pm
· Saturday December 13, 2014 @ 10:00 am
· Sunday December 14, 2014 @ 2pm
We are aware of the special events taking place in the community and we will do everything possible to ensure they are not directly impacted. We are asking you to take this information into consideration into your traffic plans for ingress and egress from Downtown Miami area. At the last event in Wynwood we had approximately 200 participants and traffic was directly impacted throughout the area.
