The Magic 101.9 studio and offices are not far from Convention Center Blvd and when there's a big event in the Convention Center, traffic gets crazy by our building. So we got this warning for Monday 1/14/2019:

Convention Center Boulevard, from Julia Street to Henderson Street will be closed to vehicular traffic, Monday, January 14th from 5:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to accommodate a Presidential visit at the New Orleans Convention Center. The New Orleans Police Department also anticipates rotating interstate/road closures between the hours of 10:00 am and 1:00 pm on Monday, January 14, 2019. The New Orleans Police Department does not anticipate that the presidential visit will impact rush hour traffic. 

So that's good news that rush hour shouldn't get hit by the traffic impact, but do be aware of short interstate block-off times and the disaster that will be anywhere near the Convention Center basically all day. {sigh}

Anyway...WHO DAT!
