Most of Vermont Avenue (open Google Map) and parts of side streets will be closed to car traffic (see roads shown in black on the map). As always, barricades are manned to allow access to EMS vehicles.
Residents within the “Closed” area should plan to avoid entering/exiting during the closure and visitors should plan to park outside the closure. Westgate Rd has been added as “closed to through traffic” by the City of Asheville this year to create a safer traffic flow (access available for residents and EMS).
Barricades will go up at 5:30pm and come down at 9pm.
At closing, residents will no longer be handing out candy (they will likely be out of candy before 9pm!) and are welcomed to turn out the lights and call it a night.
