Road closures for downtown Tampa Clinton rally

- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will make a stop in Tampa Wednesday on her 69th birthday. 

There are less than two weeks before the presidential election and Clinton will focus on encouraging Florida voters to cast an early ballot. 

Traffic is expected to be jammed in downtown Tampa this afternoon ahead of her "Vote Early" rally at Curtis Hixon Park. 

She's expected to arrive at 2:45 p.m. 

Ashley Street between Cass and Twiggs Streets is going to be closed from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Parking spots at  the Poe garage are expected to be few and far between. The city suggests that motorists use the South Regional Garage instead. There will also be parking available at Rivergate Tower, with access from westbound Twiggs Street.

The Glazier Children’s Museum will close at 12:30 p.m. because of the rally.
