BALTIMORE — Part of one of downtown Baltimore's main thoroughfares will be closed all day Friday, to allow local groups to paint Black Lives Matter on the roadway.

The event was originally scheduled for July 29, but was canceled due to rain.

Painting will occure right in between Baltimore City Hall and Police Headquarters on E. Fayette Street between Gay and Holliday Streets from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

During those hours, a detour will be set up for westbound Fayette Street traffic.

Drivers will be directed to make a right turn onto Gay Street, followed by a left onto Saratoga Street, left on Guilford Avenue , back onto westbound Fayette.

A separate unveiling will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m. outside City Hall.

The event is being organized by A Better Tomorrow Starts Today (BTST) and Kid Balloon, out of Baltimore.
