Several streets closed Tuesday due to President Biden’s visit to the site of the Monterey Park mass shooting


Several streets are closed Tuesday during President Biden’s visit to Monterey Park, the site of a mass shooting in January that killed 11 people.

Between 7 am and 8 pm, all the streets around Barnes Park will be closed, including Garfield Avenue, Newmark Avenue, Ramonda Avenue, Harding Avenue, McPherrin Avenue, Park Avenue, Huntington Avenue and Roselyn Place, according to a city news release.

There will be limited pedestrian and vehicle traffic allowed throughout the day. All vehicles parked on restricted streets will be towed. There are no plans for a public hearing or assembly, and people have been advised to avoid the area.

Monterey Park City Hall and the library will be closed Tuesday. Spirit Bus routes 1 and 2 will also be out of service.

Biden will make a stop Tuesday in a mainly Asian enclave where a gunman shot and killed 11 people at a dance studio during a Lunar New Year celebration on January 21.

Biden is expected to speak about his efforts to curb gun violence, including a bipartisan gun safety bill that was signed into law in June. The measure strengthened background checks for gun buyers ages 18 to 21 and bolstered a law that bars domestic abusers from buying guns.

Biden met last month in Washington, DC, with Brandon Tsay, the 26-year-old who knocked the gun out of the shooter’s hands as he entered Tsay’s Alhambra dance studio.
