NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It's finally Draft week in Nashville and that means more road closures are on tap as crews race to finish the set-up before festivities kick off on Thursday.

Here's a look at the current closures: 1st Ave has been shut down for weeks, but today closure extended all the way to Korean Veterans Blvd.

Broadway was supposed to have a couple lane closures today through 5th Ave but as of Monday morning, it didn't look like anyone could get through it appears to be full closure.

Avoid Broadway from Bridgestone Arena to the Riverfront.

Wednesday is the big day as a slew of new closures go into effect downtown.

Expect Demonbreun Street to close from 1st to 4th Avenue. Second, 3rd and 4th Avenues will also shut down in the area between Commerce and Demonbreun.

Across the river, 2nd Street will be added to the closures near Nissan Stadium, between Russell and Korean Vets.

I'll have more information for you all week about getting around town during the biggest week in Nashville.
