B-rrry Scurry to cause traffic re-routes

CLINTON — This weekend’s 29th running of the Clinton Community College B-rrry Scurry race will cause closures and delays along a 2-mile route of Clinton residential streets early Saturday afternoon.

The Clinton Police Department is encouraging motorists to avoid the area of the route between 11:45 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. The course will close to traffic at noon.

The race route will start on Lincoln Boulevard in front of Clinton Community College, continue northeast on Lincoln Boulevard to Eighth Avenue South and 10th Street, run east on Eighth Avenue South to South Ninth Street, run north on South Ninth Street to Fifth Avenue South, run east on Fifth Avenue South to South Fifth Street, run north on South Fifth Street to Third Avenue South, run west on Third Avenue South to South Seventh Street, run south on South Seventh Street to Fourth Avenue South and run east on Fourth Avenue South to a point about 100 feet west of South Fifth Street.

Runners will then turn and retrace the course, ending the four-mile race at Clinton Community College.

According to police, vehicles traveling on all south-north streets between South Fourth Street and Argyle Court can expect street closures.

Exceptions will be made for residents living along the race course or people who have a specific need to drive to a residence located on the course, but police say delays should still be expected. Since runners will be given preference over vehicles, motorists may not be able to enter and exit the course quickly.

Police are encouraging motorists to use Bluff Boulevard, Mill Creek Parkway and other south-north streets located east of South Fifth Street when traveling across town during race times. Motorists traveling west are encouraged to use Second Avenue South and to avoid the streets between Second Avenue South and Sixth Avenue South from South Fourth Street to Argyle Court.
