ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  You need to be cautious driving around town this weekend and watch out for runners and cyclists.

Message signs are already up at the intersection of Slappey Boulevard and Whispering Pines and Slappey and Gillionville Road. Motorists are asked to avoid those areas Saturday between 7:00 AM and 2:00 PM as marathoners will be crossing Slappey.

You can expect to see lane closures and stopped traffic at times.

"If motorists can avoid those areas, they're certainly not going to experience the delays. If you come into that area please beware that there are runners out there be on the look out for them," said Michelle Strickland, Albany Safe Communities.

Many downtown streets will also have restrictions including Pine Avenue, Broad Avenue, and Front Street. Drivers need to remember that runners will have the right of way during the race.
