On Tuesday June 18th, due to the presidential campaign event at the Amway Center, there will be significant traffic impacts to downtown. Specific event road closures, including any decisions regarding necessary traffic changes on I-4, are determined by the U.S. Secret Service, not the City of Orlando. It is expected the roadways in the immediate area surrounding the Amway Center in downtown Orlando will begin closing starting at  9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 18, including the following. Additional road closures may be implemented on the event day as needed.

  1. Church Street, from Hughey Avenue to Garland Avenue
