Metro representatives said that two of the four accesses to Zócalo station will close.
A workers union has said that they plan to join the parade in protest. Participants plan to march from the Chamber of Deputies before heading to Zócalo to join the parade.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are expected in Mexico City. Similar commemorative events are possible in major urban areas.
Revolution Day marks the start of what became the Mexican Revolution in 1910.
