Tampa To See Heavy Traffic During RNC

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor says the Republican National Convention will likely cause the heaviest traffic in downtown Tampa on the first day of the convention.

The Tampa Bay Times reports (http://bit.ly/QpewtF) that downtown business owners will also have to make temporary plans for their garbage during the event, which will be held Aug. 27-30.

Although the RNC’s big event on Aug. 26 is scheduled for Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Castor told merchants that Tampa might still see some activity on that Sunday.

While the RNC is mainly an evening event, an afternoon session would put more delegate buses on downtown streets during the day.
