City officials release plans to deal with traffic, fans, during busy week in Boston

With the World Series, a visit from President Obama, and Halloween all happening this week, Boston officials are calling in reinforcements, and asking residents and fans to keep the roads clear.

President Obama is scheduled to visit Boston Wednesday to speak about the Affordable Care Act at Faneuil Hall. His speech will begin around 4 p.m., according to a statement from the White House.

A few hours later at Fenway Park, the Red Sox will face the Cardinals in Game 6 of the World Series. Thousands of officers from the Boston police and 40 other departments will be deployed in the area around the park.

Officials are asking fans to take public transportation.

After the 6th inning, State Police will be closing Kenmore exits from both sides of Storrow Drive, the Bowker Overpass, Charlesgate east and west, and the Landmark Center intersection.

After the 7th inning, no pedestrians or vehicles will be allowed near Fenway. The MBTA will stay open to accommodate Sox fans until the ballpark is cleared, according to the MBTA.

“This is such an exciting week to be in Boston,” Mayor Thomas M. Menino said in a statement. “As the Red Sox work to close out an amazing season, Bostonians have been tremendous in showcasing our city on the national stage. This week I jut ask that we stay the course: Be responsible. Use public transportation. Use common sense.”

Some areas of the city will restrict parking after 4 p.m. Wednesday, including some streets in Brighton, the Kenmore Square/Fenway area, and Fanueil Hall, among others. The parking ban will remain in place until 2 a.m. Thursday, and includes vehicles with Boston parking permits.
