Roads close to traffic ahead of BSMF

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - May has arrived, and that means Beale Street Music Festival is just around the corner.

Thousands of people will head downtown this month, and there will be some adjustments to traffic as a result.

Riverside Drive is closed as the setup for BSMF continues. It will stay closed until Monday, May 6.

During that time, drivers will be detoured from Union Avenue to Georgia Avenue.

During the three days of the music festival, Beale Street from Wagner Place to Front Street and Wagner Place from Beale Street to MLK Boulevard will be closed to drivers for the safety of pedestrians.

Riverside Drive will again close later in the month for the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, and again for the Great American River Run.
