Fireworks will begin at dusk on July 4 and will be detonated from the southbound lane of Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge (weather permitting). Pedestrians and motorists can expect changes to the traffic pattern, beginning with the closure of the southbound lane and all access lanes at 1 p.m. The northbound lane and all access lanes will close at 8 p.m. The train trestle pedestrian bridge will close at 9 p.m. The River District can be accessed via Union Street Bridge or Industrial Avenue. The fireworks show is free and open to the community. Free parking is available in and around the River District.
