Roads closing for Boat Parade

Drivers should keep an eye out for road closures in Newport Beach during the Christmas Boat Parade, police said Monday.

A Newport Beach Police Department news release said depending on traffic flow each night of the parade, left-turn lanes from westbound East Coast Highway to southbound Jamboree Road and the right-turn lane from eastbound East Coast Highway onto southbound Jamboree may be closed.

The parade, which is hosted by the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, is scheduled for 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The parade kicks off and ends at Bay Island.

All city parking lots will be open to accommodate the anticipated influx of visitors, the release said.
