The Westport Police Department has advised residents and motorists that the Greens Farms area will be impacted by the running of the Fairfield Half Marathon on Sunday.
Runners will enter Westport on Greens Farms Road at the Fairfield town line, continuing to New Creek Road and onto Beachside Avenue before exiting into Southport, an advisory said.
Through traffic will be stopped or severely limited while runners make their way through town, police said.
Motorists should anticipate heavy delays due to road closures along the race route.
Race organizers said runners will enter town by approximately 8:15 a.m. and be off Westport streets by 10:15 a.m.
The race route runs for three miles on Westport roads. Westport emergency personnel will be stationed inside the route area to respond to any emergencies with minimal delays.
Police asked motorists to consider alternate routes if you have to pass through the area. Residents along the route should expect that it will be difficult to get in or out of driveways during times of heavy runner presence.
