Madison police closed downtown streets Thursday as thousands of protesters massed once again at the Capitol.
Hundreds of young students from many school districts reached the Square after marching from Madison West High School and joined in the protests against Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill, being taken up in the state Senate.
Motorists, pedestrians and protesters should be aware that traffic closing and detours are in a very fluid situation Thursday, so streets both away from and on the Square could open or close depending on what’s happening.
