Expect street closures in downtown Salt Lake City for marathon

Weekend » Salt Lake City police urge patience, safety during annual races drawing thousands.

First Published Apr 18 2014 11:50 am • Last Updated Apr 18 2014 10:36 pm

Police warn that when it comes to navigating street traffic and Saturday’s Salt Lake City Marathon, you may have to crawl before you can watch the run.

Extensive road closures are planned along the marathon route Saturday morning, with 208 police officers being stationed at 197 traffic-control posts. While SLCPD will strive to accommodate motorists and residents when possible, both should expect the marathon-related events to delay trips through affected areas.
