Route, street closures for parade honoring Charleston’s Olympian Raven Saunders

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — The Charleston Police Department released information on the route and street closures for a homecoming parade honoring Charleston’s Olympian Raven Saunders.

Officials say participants will line up at Burke High School at President Street and Sumter Street.

The parade begins at 6 p.m. and proceeds east on Sumter Street to King Street, south on King Street to Marion Square where it will end. It will be necessary to close intersections on King Street as the participants approach these intersections. Those intersections will reopen once the participants pass.

Calhoun Street between Meeting Street and St. Phillip Street will be closed to traffic as the parade approaches because this is the break down area.
