KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says drivers should be prepared to encounter a number of temporary detours and road closures along the Murray Half Marathon route between about 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Todd says state highways where traffic may be impeded include:

– The KY 121 Bypass between Kentucky 774/Coldwater Road and U.S. 641

Todd says variable message boards are up in those areas to alert drivers to the presence of runners. Traffic delays are possible.
