Traffic flow along Ward Parkway will be impacted this weekend due to the Burns & McDonnell Rock the Parkway half-marathon/5K run which benefits Science City at Union Station. The marathon/run will begin at 7 a.m. Saturday, April 13.

The route for the run will begin at the Burns & McDonnell headquarters, 9400 Ward Parkway, and will travel north along Ward Parkway to circle Loose Park via West 57th Terrace, Belleview Avenue, West 61st Street, Pennsylvania Avenue, West 55th Street, Wornall Road, West 51st Street, West 52nd Street, Summit Street and West 56th Street. Runners will then go south on Ward Parkway to return to the Burns & McDonnell headquarters.

More than 8,000 runners are expected to participate, and police will be on hand throughout the route to monitor traffic. Drivers will be allowed to drive across the race route when runners are not crossing. During times when runners are in the area, motorists will be required to wait. Residents and businesses directly affected by the race have been notified.

Motorists are asked to heed any detour signs and observe caution during this event, which is one of the largest half-marathons in the Midwest.
