How to get around downtown during All-Star weekend

With the MLB All-Star game in town this weekend, some street closures may impact how drivers get around Denver.

DENVER — There will be plenty of sights and sounds in downtown this weekend as Denver hosts Major League Baseball's (MLB) All-Star Weekend festivities.

One sight that may not be as pleasant to the residents of Denver are signs saying "Road Closed".

There will be multiple road closures in the downtown area this weekend, both near Coors Field for the All-Star game, and near the convention center for MLB's Play Ball Park.
