CATS prepared to adjust routes should traffic accompany protests
BATON ROUGE - The Capital Area Transit System (CATS) says it will be monitoring the volume and flow of traffic in the area of vigils and protests for recently slain Alton Sterling over the coming days.
Peaceful gatherings are planned throughout the city, and CATS intends to stay ahead of any potential traffic problems that may develop as supporters and protesters turn out for the events.
Baton Rouge Police urged motorists to avoid the area near the convenience store on North Foster Drive where Sterling was killed in an officer-involved shooting. A vigil was held there on Wednesday evening.
CATS says it will make necessary reroute determinations should they be necessary and post the changes to the CATS website at www.brcats.com/rider-alerts. Anyone with questions can contact CATS by phone at 225-389-8282.
