The 2012 Republican National Convention (RNC) will be held in Tampa, Florida from August 26-30, 2012. The event has been designated as a National Special Security Event by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Security and transportation plans for the convention and its events have been developed by a partnership of local, state and federal law enforcement and public safety agencies. Every effort has been made to minimize the impact of these safety measures.

This plan provides the general outlines for road closures, vehicular and pedestrian restricted zones and public transportation. Specific questions regarding this transportation plan should be directed to the participating agencies as identified.
