Part of Blue Ridge Drive in Martinez will close temporarily Saturday morning for the annual Lakeside High School JROTC Panthers 5K Fun Run.
Blue Ridge Drive runs from Evans-to-Locks Road to Old Evans Road, and Saturday's run will close the road between Evans-to-Locks and Fairfield Way, according to an announcement from Columbia County Emergency and Operations Director Pam Tucker.
The road closure will be from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, and will detour traffic around the portion of road. The closure also will temporarily restrict access to and from Blue Ridge Commons, Blue Ridge Crossing, Lakeside Landing, Lakeside Town Homes and Wisteria Place, Tucker said.
Motorists should make alternate travel plans during that period, Tucker said.
