If you are planning to attend the Roanoke 100 Miler Final Gathering, keep reading...
The low-water bridge from River’s Edge to Smith Park was completely flooded over as of 6pm earlier tonight. The road that leads through the park is also closed.
If you plan to attend the 100 Miler Final Gathering, here are your two options to get to Smith Park:
1. Shortest option: Park on the neighborhood streets near the new Wasena Tap Room restaurant and River House Apartments. Hop on the Greenway from there and head across the river bridge. It’s about a 5 minute walk.
2. Longer option: Park at Wasena Park and travel on the Greenway (opposite direction from Vic Thomas Park/Black Dog Salvage). It’s about a 15 minute walk.
Once again, the entire road is closed to traffic, so unless the water clears before tomorrow, your only route to Smith Park is via the Wasena side of the Greenway, and HUMAN POWERED (how appropriate :-).
Hope to see you all there! If you have questions, feel free to reply, and I'll try to answer via my Iphone email.
