  • Downtown roads began to shut down at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night, throughout the night, additional closures went into affect and barricades were erected
  • The Golden Triangle was shut down to motorists, although cyclists, walkers and certain vehicles were able to enter
  • Various protests were marked throughout the day, including a Free Tibet rally
  • Protesters squared off with police in Lawrenceville as well as Oakland.  At this time, the police are still working in Oakland.
  • President Obama arrived at the 911’th and he and the First Lady welcomed the dignitaries to the opening reception at Phipps later this evening
  • Spouses left to go to the Heinz farm and the meetings will continue tomorrow morning
