Race weekend road closures

As nearly 50,000 runners lace up, drivers will be running into road blocks all over the city.

Organizers say that roads will be closed mostly in the downtown area but some closures stretch out to the Rockcliffe Parkway, to Westboro and the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway.

Queen Elizabeth Drive will be closed from Laurier Ave. to Somerset St. until 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 25.
