Expect Traffic Delays For A Good Cause This Morning

in Community/Roadways& Traffic

No one likes traffic delays but knowing that they are for a great cause can help ease the pain of them.  That will be the case with the expected traffic delays this morning along Coal Mine Ave from Pierce St. to C-470.  Electric signs have been announcing the delays for the last few days on Wadsworth Ave. and Kipling Ave, so anticipate delays on any of the cross streets. as well. You can either avoid the area between 10-11 a.m. or have a little patience and enjoy the spectacle of all the bikes and bikers riding for a great cause.
