Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor announced street closure plans for the 13th Annual Bikes, Blues and BBQ motorcycle rally, set for Wednesday, Sept. 26 through Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012.
Tabor said there are currently no plans to close Dickson Street or West Avenue to vehicle traffic on Wednesday or Thursday, but if motorcycle or pedestrian safety dictates a closure, the situation will be re-evaluated.
Street closures to several streets will begin on Friday and Saturday “as public safety dictates” and are subject to change, Tabor said.
Friday street closures
Dickson Street will be closed from St. Charles to Arkansas Avenue. West Avenue will initially be closed from Spring Street to Watson Street, but as the day progresses, the closure will extend to Lafayette Street.
Saturday street closures
Dickson Street will be closed from St. Charles Avenue to Arkansas Avenue. West Avenue will be closed from Spring Street to Lafayette Street.
Parking on Dickson Street will be limited at certain times of the day. Prior to each day of the event, signs will be placed early in the morning hours indicating when vehicles must be removed from Dickson Street. Citizens are encouraged to pay close attention to these signs and have their vehicles removed by the designated time.
A portion of the paid parking area in the Entertainment District will be suspended for the event, but residential permitted and paid parking will be enforced in the surrounding neighborhoods.
