Belle Isle Closed To Vehicle Traffic Until 2pm Monday

DETROIT (WWJ) – Excitement is building for the red, white, and boom that will fill the sky over the Detroit River for Monday night’s annual fireworks show. But up until 2:00 Monday afternoon, Belle Isle – which is normally bustling on fireworks morning – will remain quiet. WWJ’s Citybeat Reporter Vickie Thomas reports that there are two police cars, with lights flashing, posted on either side of barricades that are keeping vehicles off the island until Monday afternoon when it’ll be opened for firework’s spectators. There are a few exceptions to that, however, like employees of the park and members of a rowing team who practice on Belle Isle every morning. Pedestrians also still have access to the park.
