Mexico City authorities warned about various road closures Monday, due to demonstrations or protests.

The Public Security Secretariat (SSP) stated on its Twitter account, @OVIALCDMX, that circulation is closed in Municipio Libre and recommended that drivers travel through Eje 7 A Sur instead.

The Urban Management Agency (AGU) recommend another route for drivers, through Miguel Laurent.

They also reported protests around Chivatito road, which may affect traffic on Paseo de la Reforma, and recommended using President Masaryk or Horacio Avenue as an alternative route.

The SSP said that Monday would see 2,450 police deployed as part of a security and mobility operation to monitor the protests that are expected to be held on Teacher’s Day.

According to the information, road closures are expected on the main thoroughfares of Mexico City, such as Paseo de la Reforma. Drivers are recommended to use Circuit Bicentenario, Eje 2 Oriente H. Congreso de la Unión, Eje 3 Oriente Francisco del Paso and Troncoso.

Other good alternative routes include Anillo de Circunvalación, Fray Servando Teresa de Mier, Eje 1 Norte Rayón, Avenida Chapultepec, Eje 3 Sur Avenida Morelos and Eje 2 Norte Manuel González.
