Don't get towed: CCC race day restrictions in place


Parking and other restrictions will be in place Saturday for the Crescent City Classic 10-K road race.

At 5 a.m., NOPD officers will divert all traffic on Poydras Street from South Claiborne Avenue to Loyola Avenue, including the areas surrounding the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sugar Bowl Drive, West Stadium Drive and Dave Dixon Drive.

Beginning at 8 a.m., the runners will depart from Poydras and Loyola, proceed river-bound on Poydras to S. Peters, turn left onto S. Peters to N. Peters, to Decatur to N. Peters to Esplanade, turn left onto Esplanade using both sides of the street, and proceed lake-bound on Esplanade to N. Carrollton/Wisner, veer left of the traffic circle to N. Carrollton to City Park Avenue, turn right onto City Park Avenue to Anseman, and turn right onto Anseman to inside the park.

Once inside the park, all point control positions will be manned by the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office. Runners will continue on Anseman to Victory, turn right against traffic on Victory to Turner Lane, turn right onto Turner Lane to Dreyfous, turn left onto Dreyfus past the Casino, over the bridge, past the museum to Lelong, turn left with traffic onto Lelong to the museum, veer right/counter clockwise around museum to Roosevelt Mall, turn right onto Roosevelt Mall and veer left at the fork to the finish line.

Those who are driving to the race are encouraged to park in downtown long-term lots and use the shuttle system race organizers have arranged. The race course will become a no-parking zone beginning at midnight Friday. Towing will begin immediately to allow race organizers to set up. Meters will be bagged and signs will be posted warning residents of the parking restrictions.

Parking enforcement officers will be monitoring for illegal parking - including blocked fire hydrants, driveways and sidewalks. Parking is not allowed on the neutral grounds or within 20 feet of a crosswalk, intersection or stop signs in the residential neighborhoods adjacent to the start and finish line. This includes Navarre, City Park and Bayou St. John. Drivers are also reminded to park in the direction of travel on one-way streets and with the right wheel to the curb on two-way streets.

In addition, RTA services, including streetcar lines and bus service, may be interrupted during these events. Details on route changes are available here
