The Detroit Free Press Marathon takes place this weekend, and that means to expect some road closures on Sunday (Oct. 17).

If you’re going to the Detroit Lions game at Ford Field against the Cincinnati Bengals, you’ll likely hit some delays.

The Detroit Free Press Marathon begins at 7 a.m., while the Lions game starts at 1 p.m.

Here are the main Free Press Marathon closures that will likely impact Lions traffic:

Streets along the route closest to Ford Field, such as the I-75 Service Drive (between Cass and Woodward), Cass Avenue and Park Avenue – closed 4 a.m. to 12 p.m.
I-375 southbound Jefferson East exit – closed 4 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Southbound M-10 (the Lodge) exit to Larned – closed 4 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Northbound I-75 exit to Grand River – closed 4 a.m. to 12 p.m.
