Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run set for this weekend
June 2, 2016
Cape Breton Regional Police remind motorists that traffic will be affected this weekend, when thousands of runners hit the streets for the Doctors Nova Scotia Youth Run.
On Saturday, June 4th, youth runners will depart the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion at 10:00 AM; from there, they head north on the Esplanade to Ortona Street, east to George Street, south to Dorchester Street, west to the Esplanade and then north along the Esplanade back to the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion.
The Esplanade – between Ortona Drive and Dorchester Street – will be completely closed to traffic from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, and motorists will be reduced to one lane of traffic on both Dorchester Street and George Street during the same time period.
There is no parking on site; participants and spectators are advised to arrive early and park as far away from the Start/Finish line as possible to alleviate congestion. Limited free parking is also available at CBRM waterfront parking lots.
Cape Breton Regional Police will be patrolling the route, with extra traffic detail in place. Officers and volunteer course marshals will also be present at key points along the routes, along with barricades and signage to redirect motorists.
