Lincoln Avenue, Elk River Road closures planned for marathon Sunday

Test your endurance with the picturesque course known as the Steamboat Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k.

The 37th annual Steamboat Marathon is Sunday, June 3. As a result of the event, motorists traveling in the area should expect significant traffic delays.

There will be two traffic lanes — one in each direction — on Lincoln Avenue downtown during the marathon. The westbound lanes of Lincoln Avenue will be closed from Fifth to 11th streets for the finish of the Steamboat Marathon, half-marathon and 10K races. The closure will be from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Traffic control will be in place on Routt County Road 129. Northbound traffic on C.R. 129 will be diverted to the left lane just past the entrance to Elk River Estates and will proceed north to Cullen’s Corner. Southbound traffic on C.R. 129 will be diverted at Cullen’s Corner onto Routt County Road 44 and then back onto C.R. 129 just north of the airport.

From Cullen’s Corner north to the start of the half marathon near Moon Hill, there will be one-way traffic, controlled by a pilot car leading traffic on the west side of the road.

Call the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association at 970-879-0880 for more information.
