TRAFFIC ALERT: Road closures for the Biggest Loser Run/Walk


The Biggest Loser Run/Walk will take place Saturday morning, causing several Rockford roads to close.

The race starts at 7:00 a.m., but closures will start at 5:00 a.m. The race will begin and end at Wyman Street near Chestnut, go north on Wyman to Park Avenue, west on Park to North Main Street, north on North Main to Harlem Boulevard, northeast on Harlem to the Auburn Street Bridge.

Once runners hit the bridge, they'll go east, then north using the bike path into Loves Park, and then return, going south on the bike path to Madison Street, to Walnut, then west across the Chestnut Street Bridge to the finish line at Wyman.

Police will have traffic controls set up on arterials like Jefferson and Whitman Streets, allowing traffic to periodically cross.

Motorists should be cautious and keep an eye out for runners.
