Roads close for the Martin Luther King Jr. parade. What else is closed on Monday

You can expect road closures in South Dallas and temporary closures of some city services on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Organized by the nonprofit HELP, the city’s holiday parade will take place this Monday, January 16, and will result in the closure of one road, according to organizer Clinton Baker.

The City will close off the one-mile stretch of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard where the parade takes place from 7:00 a.m. to approximately 2:00 p.m. The closed east–west road extends from Botham Jean Boulevard near Oak Cliff to Robert B. Cullum. Boulevard near the Fair Park.

In addition, all streets crossing MLK Boulevard, including Holmes Street, Colonial Avenue, Atlanta Street and Malcolm X Boulevard, will be closed during this time.

The parade, which is expected to draw between 150,000 and 200,000 people, will start at 10:00 am on Holmes Street. This year’s celebration marks the parade’s return to Dallas from 2020, Baker said.

He added that the Dallas parade is one of the largest MLK Day celebrations in the country and will feature bands, church bands and colorful floats.

Public institutions and departments will be closed on Monday due to the holiday in accordance with the city schedule.

City libraries, houses of culture and municipal courts will be closed to the public on Monday. Other closed facilities include Dallas Water Utilities administrative offices and city sanitation services. If you’re facing a water emergency, the city says customers should call 311.

Normal business hours for most departments will resume on Tuesday, January 17th.
