Races bring runners, street closures
The Park District of Oak Park's annual Frank Lloyd Wright Races, set for Sun. Oct. 21, are expected to bring more than 2,700 runners to the Village and a host of temporary street closures from about 7:30 – 10 a.m. Traffic controllers will work to allow cars to pass safely during gaps in groups of runners, but waits between gaps may be up to 15 minutes, officials say. Drivers traveling east or westbound are urged to stay south of Lake Street or to use North Avenue. For north or south travel, Austin Boulevard and Harlem Avenue will be the best routes to avoid runners and delays. For more information, visitwww.flwraces.com.
