Protestors to march down West End Avenue Tuesday afternoon

Posted: Updated:

A protest on West End Avenue could cause some traffic problems during the Tuesday afternoon commute.

Hundreds of protestors are expected to begin walking at 3:30 p.m. at the West End United Methodist Church at 2200 West End Ave. and end with a picket and rally at the Publix on Harding Pike at 5:30 p.m.

The march is a part of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers' 10-day tour across the country. Organizers say the purpose of the march is to call on Publix to join the Fair Food Program.

The eastbound entrance ramp to I-440 will be blocked while the participants cross the road.

Metro police says extra officers will be on hand to help with traffic flow.
