There are some major road closures in Tulsa for the 4th of July as people celebrate Independence Day at the Folds of Honor FreedomFest. 

The 21st Street bridge and streets closest to Veterans Park shut down Thursday morning, and others were to close in the afternoon. 

Jackson from 20th Street to 23th Street will close at 4:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon; then, Riverside between 31st Street and Denver will shut down at 5 p.m.     

Riverside from 31st Street to 41st Street will close at 9 p.m. before the fireworks begin.   

Ryan Howell with the River Parks Authority says they're expecting thousands of people to watch the fireworks from Gathering Place, so drivers may want to plan on extra time if you're driving in that area.

"We've expanded the ability for people to enjoy this show that we're able to put on and celebrate the 4th of July, so, you know, Gathering Place is anticipating 25,000 to 30,000 people in attendance," said event coordinator Ryan Howell. 

All of these streets should be open again by midnight Thursday.
