President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will be in Milwaukee Tuesday night for a campaign rally and while that means a lot of things to a lot of different people, it means one thing for everyone: traffic.

Street closures will begin at 12 p.m. Tuesday and are expected to reopen at 10 p.m.

The following roads will be closed:

  • West State Street: Old World 3rd Street to North James Lovell Street will be closed
  • West Kilbourn Avenue: Old World 3rd Street to North 6th Street will be closed
  • North Vel R. Phillips Street: West Wells Street to 1034 North Vel R. Phillips Street will be closed
  • North 6th Street: West Wells Street to West State Street will be closed
  • North 6th Street will be impacted from West McKinley Avenue to West State Street all day

Police say intermittent access will be allowed to the parking lot at North 6th Street and West State Street.

Drop-offs, such as rideshares, will be allowed to drop off at North Vel R. Phillips Street and West Highland Avenue. Those vehicles must enter from the east at Old World 3rd Street and West Highland Avenue.

Doors open at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena at 3 p.m. for President Trump's rally.

And if that wasn't enough, the Bucks also play at Fiserv Forum Tuesday night. Doors at Fiserv Forum are opening early at 5 p.m. in anticipation of heavy traffic. Fans are urged to show up to that game early to avoid the chaos
