Downton Houston streets won't have much traffic on them around where they'll be setting up the fireworks display.
Houston's Happy Fourth of July festivities — whether they come off or not depending on which weather forecast you believe — will require the closure of several streets which are listed below.

In addition, according to a press release sent out Friday afternoon, unnamed roadways that are near these streets will be closed as well.

Probably your best bet is to watch from afar.
