Friday’s visit by first lady Michelle Obama will cause street closures near the Main Street Arena in downtown Charlottesville, according to city officials.

From noon to 4 p.m., Water Street will be closed to vehicle and foot traffic from the 200 block to Ridge McIntire Road.

Old Preston Avenue will also be closed to vehicle traffic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will instead be used as a parking area for media trucks.

The first lady’s speech at the arena is scheduled to begin at about 2 p.m.
