Denver Marathon needs to end Marathon Gridlock next year
New York, Chicago and San Diego do it much better.
Traffic management within Denver was Horrendous yesterday during the marathon; what a poor design for the locals and tourists trapped within the inner city area. We sat in our car for hours trying to leave Denver-que lastima
Question: Can't the organizers come up with a design that allows ingress/egress to at least one major hway (25-70 etc). Having a cop let one car cross over the route every 30 minutes is crazy for a major metropolitan area. Just for the record I am a marathoner and not unsympathetic to running a good race, but I believe that any future design should allow for a better design for vehicular traffic. There should be a intelligent route that doesn't stagnate the entire inner/central city with gridlock.
