A major parade means major road closings. If you plan to travel through parts of Gainesville today, you’ll have to adjust your route starting at 10:00am, when these roads will be closed for the University of Florida homecoming parade:
University Avenue from the West 2000 block to the East 300 block
Main Street from the South 200 block to the North 400 block
SW 2nd Avenue: the 2300 block will be closed
13th Street from the South 300 block to the North 400 block
Law enforcement suggests as alternate routes, Waldo Road and 34th St. for travel North-South, and 16th Ave. and 8th Ave. for those who need to travel East and West.
The parade should be over by 2:30 or 3:00 p.m.
