Officials: Take care during Mill Race Marathon traffic closings

Columbus and Bartholomew County emergency officials want to remind you that traffic in large parts of the city will be disrupted tomorrow morning for the Mill Race Marathon.

The county emergency operations center sent out a warning over the Everbridge Alert System at about 3 p.m. yesterday afternoon, reminding residents that the downtown area will be especially constricted because of marathon activities tomorrow morning. They asked for your patience and that you pay extra attention for runners during your travels.

Some street closings are already underway. No parking is allowed on Washington Street from 5th to 7th streets. Sixth Street closed this morning from Washington Street to the alley west of Franklin and is closing soon from Washington to the 6th Street parking garage.

There will be no parking on Washington Street from 3rd to 5th streets starting at 4 p.m. this afternoon. Fourth Street will be closing at noon from Jackson to Franklin.
