It’s going to be detour city while P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon runs through town Sunday!  Over 22-thousand runners will hit the pavement for a 26.2 mile marathon that races through the streets beginning in Phoenix and ending in Tempe.  The Arizona Department of Transportation says the off-ramp from Loop

202 Westbound at Van Buren Street will be closed between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Traffic exiting the Loop 202 Eastbound at 52nd Street will not be able to turn to Eastbound Van Buren between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. 

Tempe Beach Park is the finish line for the 26 mile marathon block party and everyone is invited to attend for free.  There will be music, food and a beer garden.
