The Red Sox released the following information for fans attending ALDS Home Game One at Fenway Park on Sunday, October 11 at 12:07 p.m.

STREET CLOSURES

The 2009 Boston Athletic Association Half Marathon will take place tomorrow and will begin at 8:00 a.m. beginning, and ending, at Roberto Clemente Park in the Fenway with over 5,000 participants. The following street closures will affect the neighborhood around Fenway Park per the City of Boston Transportation Department and the Boston Athletic Association:

  • Park Drive will be closed at 5:00 a.m. for set up (service road remains open).
  • Traffic will be delayed on various streets intermittently between 7:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (and maybe beyond) to allow the runners to proceed along the course. The course begins at Roberto Clemente Park and goes through the Riverway and over Route 9 into Brookline. The course then passes Jamaica Pond and the Arborway on its way to Franklin Park, with a turnaround in the Franklin Park Zoo. Returning from Franklin Park, the course follows the Arborway to the Jamaicaway to the Riverway before finishing back in the Fenway on Park Drive near the rose garden and Veteran's Memorial.
  • Once all the runners pass the intersection by the Landmark Center, the police will re-open that intersection (around 8:10am) until the runners return from Franklin Park (around 8:35am - wheelchair leaders) and then shut it down again. Police will be "pulsing" traffic through when it is safe to do so.
  • The Red Sox urge all fans attending the game at Fenway Park on Sunday to take Public Transportation.
