The annual City Park Lighting event will be held on the evening of Friday, December 6th. In order to provide space for participants and pedestrians around the lake, a portion of Key Street will be closed during the event. Beginning at 9:00 AM on Friday morning, Key Street will be closed to all traffic between Park Circle and Museum Drive. Vehicles will be able to use City Park Drive at the southern end of the park to access the Museum, the Hager House, and other facilities around the park. Motorists approaching the closure will encounter signs, barricades, and other traffic control devices. It is anticipated that Key Street will be reopened to traffic by approximately 10:00 AM on Saturday morning.
Emergency vehicles will not be able to pass through this section of Key Street while the closure is in effect, but will be able to respond to calls within City Park via the southern park entrance.
Please contact the City’s Department of Parks & Engineering at 301-739-8577 extension 180 if there are any questions regarding this advisory.
