Race Day Road Closures

Thank you for being patient with us as we continue our tradition that was established on the 2nd Sunday after Labor Day in 2002. The Lake Michigan Credit Union Bridge Run aims to provide everyone a great experience to celebrate their movement. In addition to this, each year raises money for local charities that focus on helping the community get out and active.

We recognize that not everyone is coming downtown Sunday morning for our race. We want to give you a little context for out to navigate the road closures.

Impact in the City Center


The race starts at 8am, with the only road closures taking place prior to this being on Front Street, just south of the 6th Street Bridge.
At 8am, our race will start and move across the 6th Street Bridge, south on Monroe Avenue, through the heart of the City and back to the 6th Street Bridge heading north on Scribner. The area of downtown south of 6th Street, north of Campau, West of Ottawa, and East of 131 will be impacted from roughly 8am to 9am. Police will be letting traffic through as there are breaks in the runners.



Impact on North Monroe

Roughly around 8:20am, our runners will be moving along Monroe Avenue, north of Lenoard to Riverside Park. Monroe Avenue will be closed to traffic in this section from roughly 8:20am to 10am. Police will be letting traffic through as there are breaks in runners. 

Our race does not use the North Park Bridge or the Fulton Street bridge, which will be a good way to cross the river heading east or west. We also will not use Division Avenue, which will be a good route to take to travel north or south (in addition to 131 or anything west of the Grand River).
