Road Closure Heads up for Saturday!
Updated: May 3, 2019
Thousands of runners will storm through Provo on Saturday, May 4 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.
Runners will start their trek down the canyon at 7:00 am. Between 7:00 am and approximately 1:00 pm the outside northbound lane of University Avenue will be closed between 5200 N and 200 North University Avenue. The downtown area between 200 North to 300 South and 100 West to 100 East will be closed for the finish line area until approximately 1:00 pm.
We will be allowing traffic to cross at all intersections when there is a break in runners but Motorists should expect significant delays crossing University Avenue and in our Downtown area between 7:00 am until approximately 1:00 pm. Please consider using alternate routes through Provo. If you need to get across University Avenue, please do so on 300 South.
UVX will use Freedom Blvd that morning and will return to the normal route once Center Street and University Avenue open at approximately 1:00 pm. We suggest all trucks use 300 South or 800 North in Orem.
