Cleveland will be swarmed by NBA All-Star activities and various so-called "activations" taking over public and private venues citywide through the coming weekend.

In preparation for the dizzying array of spectacles, and the abundant personnel and equipment required to activate them, the city has announced a series of road closures and parking restrictions downtown.

The streets around Progressive Field and the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, in particular, will be subject to heightened restrictions due to the concentration of events in the area, (including the All-Star Game itself, Sunday night). But a few streets around the CSU Wolstein Center and the Public Auditorium will also be closed. 

You can reference the list of closures and the full map below. If you're going downtown for All-Star events, consider taking RTA.
