Two groups took to highly visible locations in Lamorinda Friday to make their political beliefs known, one coming out to express support for the Biden/Harris presidential ticket on the St. Stephens overpass in Orinda while a group opposed to the current president and racism took position a little further east on the El Curtola Bridge overpass.
Lafayette PD moved into the neighborhood around El Curtola after protestors positioned cars blocking traffic in the area, eventually closing El Curtola between Old Tunnel and Camino Diablo at 5:05 p.m.
Camino Diablo was also closed from the city public works yard to the Walnut Creek border, with all traffic diverted due to the protest.
The St. Stephens contingent apparently gathered peacefully, planning to disperse at 6 p.m., while the El Curtola Rally, also scheduled to go to 6 p.m., continued with police in the area.
No incidents, arrests have been reported that we are aware of at this time.
