Thousands of runners will storm through Provo on Saturday, May 1 for the Provo City Half Marathon. We want them to be safe so some driving pattern adjustments will need to be made on that day. Some streets will need to be closed to traffic during the event. If you’re not running in the race, you may want take note of how it could impact traffic.


There will be a small festival on Center Street the night before, on Friday, April 30. Center Street will be closed between University Ave and 100 W and University Ave will be closed from 200 North to 300 South starting at 5:00 pm on Friday until 3:00 pm on Saturday.


Runners will start their trek down the canyon at 8:00 am on Saturday, May 1. Between 8:00 am and approximately 1:00 pm the outside northbound lane of University Ave will be closed at 5200 N to 200 N and the downtown area between 200 North to 300 South and 100 West to 100 East will be closed for the finish line.


Motorists should expect significant delays crossing University Avenue and in our Downtown area between 8:00 am until approximately 3:00 pm. If you need to get across University Avenue, please do so on 300 South.
