Folsom road closures for races
The 2016 Amgen Tour of California reaches Sacramento County on Friday with time trials on a 12.6-mile course in Folsom. The women’s team time trial starts at 10:30 a.m., and the men’s individual time trial begins at 12:50 p.m. The men’s race is expected to conclude about 3:45 p.m., according to race organizers. It is the sixth stage of the men’s tour. Both races use the same course, which starts in downtown Folsom and travels over the Rainbow Bridge and Folsom Lake Crossing. Upon reaching an intermediate point on Green Valley Road near the El Dorado County line, cyclists must execute a U-turn and retrace the route to the finish. Traffic information posted on the city of Folsom website says that the route, which also includes portions of Greenback Lane, Folsom-Auburn Road and East Natoma Street, will be closed from about 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. No public parking will be permitted in the historic district on the day of the races. The city advises spectators to walk, bike or take light rail. Four bike valet locations are planned. For the best places to view Friday’s races, go to sacb.ee/6kkD.
