For the first time ever a  section of Harbor Drive in front of the San Diego Convention Center will be closed to public traffic, including skateboards and scooters according to Fox 5

The section spans from First Avenue to Park Boulevard and will be closed on Thursday through Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm and Sunday from  7 am to 7 pm. 

As the city gets ready for hordes of visitors to the Convention Center at Comic-Con the closure will cut down on congestion while allowing shuttles to come and go and give better access to emergency vehicles. 

“Every year there’s always a huge amount of people crossing the streets and there’s always a lot of anxious people who are trying to cross the street right away,” Comic-Con attendee Nemi Portillo said. “There’s a lot of problems with traffic in general. If they close the whole Harbor Drive that would make everything a lot easier.”

Comic-Con takes place from Thursday, July 19, 2018, to Sunday, July 22, 2018.
