PROVO — Here's your guide to Wednesday road closures and traffic delays for Fourth of July parades and celebrations around Utah.
The parade begins at 9:30 a.m. on Center Street, just east of State Street. It will turn on State Street and head south until 700 South/state Route 193, where it will turn east. Once the parade hits Clearfield High School, it will turn south on 1000 East once again, and the parade route will end after passing by the high school.
Traffic will be impacted on July 4th during the parade. Please plan accordingly. State Street (Center St to 700 S) and SR 193 (State Street to 1000 E) will close at 9 AM. Please follow the directions of our officers as they direct traffic. Have a safe and happy 4th of July. pic.twitter.com/zr8N3kkaxB— Clearfield PD, Utah (@ClearfieldPD) July 3, 2018

The parade route is slightly different this year because of construction on the Bus Rapid Transit.
