During the president's visit, officials said drivers can expect streets throughout downtown to be shut down. Those include Main Street between Second and Fifth Streets, as well as Muhammad Ali Boulevard from Third to Fifth Streets. The city said Trump's route in and out of downtown Louisville could vary, so the closures could reach as far north as River Road and as far south as Chestnut Street.
