Puente Alsina connects Buenos Aires with Lanus, in the Buenos Aires province. The demonstration is being held to protest electricity cuts in the area.
Transportation disruptions are ongoing and are expected to continue for several hours. A heightened security presence should be anticipated in the near term.
Those in Buenos Aires are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all large public gatherings as a precaution, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, and adjust travel plans where necessary.
