Race Route & Road Closures

Streets will begin closing at 8:00am and will remain closed until about 11:00pm for clean up.

We would like to remind residents both on and inside the course (see map) that they will need to park their cars outside the permit area if in/out access is needed. 

There will no parking in the 1700 blocks of Marion, Lake Bluff and Kensington from Oakland Ave. westward to the commercial alley or end of commercial buildings, whether signs are posted or not.  The race route is bound by Oakland Ave, Marion St, Maryland Ave & Kensington Blvd with barricades on Glendale Ave., the north end of Oakland with the Kensington Street Block Party from 4500 to 4528 Oakland Ave.

For those located within the interior of the race route, you will have vehicle access at the intersection of Lake Bluff & Maryland Ave. in between races.  This will be the only point that Shorewood Police will allow vehicle traffic to cross the route during intervals in the race. There will be no parking allowed on the racecourse during the event.  Please be sure to obey temporary no parking signs to avoid tickets and towing.
