For residents of the south end:

If you are trying to exit via vehicle the best route to use is Crown St. The intersection at Union St. is closed to allow the parade to move from the causeway onto the parade route at 6 p.m. and we strive to re-open the intersection as quickly as possible. Thank you for your co-operation.
