San Diego is readying itself for a mass of pop culture fans.
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.
