Montgomery County law enforcement agencies released a list of roads to take and avoid when traveling to a rally for former President Donald Trump set to take place Jan. 29 at the county fairgrounds.

The Conroe Police Department and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said FM 3083 will be the main road toward parking for the event. According to a sheriff’s office statement, visitors will then take Airport Road to be guided toward designated parking.

According to a post from the sheriff’s office on Facebook, Airport Road north of the convention center will be closed to road traffic, while a foot traffic-only route will be open on Airport Parkway.

The sheriff's office warned guests not to park on paved roads, which are reserved for first responders, and encouraged carpooling. Ride-hailing services are available at the Lone Star Convention Center.

Questions can be directed to 936-756-1010. The gates will open at 6 a.m., and Trump is expected to speak at 7 p.m.
