Street closures scheduled during April 28 YMCA event

The YMCA of Marquette County will be sponsoring its 18th annual YMCA Run/Walk on Saturday, April 28, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Events will include a 10-mile and 10k run, a 5k run/walk, a 1-mile youth run and a toddler trot.

The following streets will be closed from 8 a.m. to noon:

  1. Lakeshore Boulevard from Fair Avenue to Wright Street
  2. Pine Street from Fair Avenue to Lakeshore
  3. Wright from Lakeshore to Presque Isle Avenue

The detour route will be along Fair Avenue and Presque Isle Avenue.

All events will start at the YMCA, turn north on Pine Street and continue north along the multi-use path. The 5k race will go to a point shortly north of the Dead River Bridge and return to the YMCA along the same route.

The 10k and 10-mile runs will continue to and around Presque Isle Park. The 10k will return to the YMCA; the 10-mile run will turn west on Hawley Street, north on the two-track trail, cross Schneider Mill Court and Powder Mill Road and proceed westerly on the Noquemanon Trail before returning along the same trail and road crossings to the multi-use path, Pine Street and the YMCA.

Hawley Street will be open to traffic and vehicles will be sharing the road with runners crossing the road. As such, motorists are asked to be extremely cautious while driving on Hawley Street between Lakeshore Boulevard and Presque Isle Avenue and are asked to obey the road crossing attendants.
