A number of road closures are expected during the 2013 Sound to Narrows on June 8, which will feature a series of events starting and finishing in Vassault Park at the intersection of North Vassault and North 37th Streets in Tacoma. Vassault Street, North 37th Street, and the curb lane of southbound Pearl Street will be closed to all traffic. Additionally, access to neighborhoods in the area of the race will be restricted, as there will be multiple secondary road closures. Most of the road closures will take place between the hours of 6:30 and 11 a.m.
Event organizers, in cooperation with the City of Tacoma, have designated neighborhood access points for residents to enter and exit their own neighborhoods. These access points are located at North 46th Street and North 49th Street on both Pearl and Vassault streets. Police officers will help residents requiring access cross the race course at those points when there are no runners and it is safe to cross.
