Coast Guard sets Ohio River safety zone for All-Star game

Here are some updates from today related to security at the All-Star game in Cincinnati next week.


CINCINNATI — The Coast Guard, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies will begin additional maritime safety and security operations on the Ohio River in support of the 86th Major League Baseball All Star Game, Thursday.
Boaters can expect no wake zones, interruptions and closures to maritime traffic.

The river will be closed to commercial traffic during the game itself. There will also be closures for events at the ballpark and the fireworks display.

If you plan to have a boat on the river near downtown Cincinnati between now and then, you'd better check the no-wake restrictions and closure times.
