SUNDAY MYSORE TRAFFIC ALERT!
The annual Race for the Cure is set to take place tomorrow, Sunday September 18. This means downtown access and parking will be a real mess --- expect traffic closures from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
I’ve pasted the course map below. Park OUTSIDE the race loop and then walk, bus, or take the train to class --- or else you risk getting caught in the loop until 11 or noon.
Race organizers recommend using public transportation (TriMet buses and MAX are on Sunday schedules). Bridges near the event will all be open. The Broadway, Steel, Burnside or Morrison bridge will be open to allow access inside the event route.
Anyone wishing to avoid the event can use the Hawthorne Bridge, which is outside of the area affected by the race events.
IF YOU DRIVE:
Expect parking to be limited. If you are going east-west, the city transportation bureau recommends using Northwest Everett and Glisan streets.
Traffic in downtown Portland will be affected until around 10 a.m. The events draw tens of thousands of participants. Drivers and transit users should allow for extra time traveling to, from or through downtown.
