The Village of Flossmoor will experience a series of rolling road closures Saturday September 11 during the running of the Hidden Gem Half Marathon.
There will be a period of “Soft” closures and then “Hard” closures when runners enter each neighborhood. These hard closures will vary by neighborhood and are unlikely to last longer than 1 hour in most neighborhoods.
The following streets will remain open throughout the race and should be used as alternative routes.
