Traffic delays expected Sunday during Steamboat Marathon

— The 34th annual Steamboat Marathon is Sunday. As a result of the event, drivers 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. Runners will use a 6-foot lane on the north side of Lincoln Avenue, and uniformed officers will guide traffic.

Northbound traffic on Routt County Road 129 will use the southbound lane just past the entrance to Elk River Estates and proceed north to Cullen’s Corner. Southbound traffic on County Road 129 will be diverted at Cullen’s Corner onto C.R. 44, then back onto C.R. 129 just before the airport. From Cullen’s Corner to the start of the half-marathon, there will be one-way traffic.

Traffic controls and pilot car operations will be in place on C.R. 129.
