CLEVELAND - With street closures, detours and extra pedestrian traffic, the Republican National Convention will be anything but business as usual.
For tons of native Clevelanders, the busyness will be altering their schedules a lot too.
"My whole life is going to be uprooted. I won't be able to travel in and out, I won't be able to use my car, public transportation, even my work is gonna be impacted by this," said Katherine Taylor who lives and works downtown.
Some businesses are still unsure if they will be able to operate as usual and some already have their back-up plans in place.
For example, Sherwin-Williams corporate headquarters are at the corner of Prospect and Ontario. Their Director of Corporate Communications told Fox 8 that some executives will come in to work, but some will have the option to work from home.
