Schools on both sides of the border are going to be closed, traffic is expected to be crazier than anything the Borderland has ever seen, and now, Juarez restaurants are being asked to keep their doors open for 24 hours.

That's what the Diocese of Juarez asked of restaurant owners yesterday. They say the expected hundreds of thousands of people who will be in Juarez for Pope Francis' visit on February 17th will need some place to get meals, and one way to make sure everyone can eat is to keep the doors of the city's restaurants open 24 hours.

One restaurant owner tells KTSM that he's not sure if he'll stay open. There is no word on if El Paso restaurants are planning expanded hours.
