Several roads are closed Tuesday during President Biden’s visit to Monterey Park – the site of a mass shooting in January that killed 11 people.
According to a city press release, all streets around Barnes Park will be closed between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., including Garfield Avenue, Newmark Avenue, Ramonda Avenue, Harding Avenue, McPherrin Avenue, Park Avenue, Huntington Avenue and Roselyn Place.
Pedestrian and vehicle traffic will be restricted throughout the day. All vehicles parked on restricted streets will be towed. There are no plans for public tours or gatherings and people have been advised to avoid the area.
Monterey Park City Hall and the library will be closed on Tuesday. Spirit Bus lines 1 and 2 will also be out of service.
Biden will stop Tuesday in a mainly Asian enclave where a gunman shot dead 11 people at a dance studio during a New Year’s celebration on Jan. 21.
Biden is expected to speak about his efforts to curb gun violence, including a bipartisan gun safety bill that was signed into law in June. The measure increased background checks for 18- to 21-year-old gun buyers and strengthened a law preventing domestic abusers from buying guns.
Biden met with Brandon Tsay last month in Washington, DC, the 26-year-old who took the gun out of the gunman’s hands as he entered Tsay’s Alhambra dance studio.
