Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum signed an executive order on Thursday putting a curfew in effect for a downtown area covering several blocks around the BOK Center ahead of Saturday’s Trump campaign rally.

No one may be out in the area until 6 a.m. Saturday unless they’re going to or from work or home. The area stretches roughly from Sixth Street to Archer Street and from Houston Avenue to Boulder Avenue. That includes the BOK Center, so people planning to attend the rally cannot legally camp on the sidewalk outside.

The curfew will also be in effect from after the rally concludes Saturday night until 6 a.m. Sunday.

Streets within the curfew area are being closed to vehicle traffic. The Tulsa Police Department is asking cars parked in the area to be moved by 10 a.m.; otherwise, they will be towed.

Many Tulsa Transit routes will be affected by plans for the campaign rally. Denver Avenue Station will be closed on Saturday and Sunday, and transfers will take place between Elgin and Frankfort on 4th Street. A full list of Tulsa Transit travel impacts is available on the agency's website.
