MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Roads in Mankato will be closed Saturday for the Mankato Marathon.

Most of the closures will happen on Saturday, but there will be a few starting on Friday.

From 2 p.m. on Friday to midnight on Saturday, Poplar Street will be closed.

On Saturday, Front Street, Stoltzman, Blue Earth Street, Park Lane, Woodland Avenue and Sibley will be closed as well.

The City of Mankato is putting the word out about traffic delays.

”In the Lincoln Park and West Mankato area. We will have law enforcement at the heavy traffic areas, we will have city staff at the other key locations. A lot of the impacts will be side streets, so that will be manned by volunteers. So, we always ask that people be patient and maybe give themselves an extra couple of minutes. We do want to make sure that the runners are safe and that drivers are safe,” explained Michael McCarty, assistant city engineer for the City of Mankato.

It is recommended to plan ahead if driving in these areas.
