It's that time again, tonight is the 26th annual Sunset Classic. Things will start jamming up about 6:30.
If you are not participating, I strongly advise you to do your best to avoid the Northeast quadrant of town (and the adjoining section of Bloomfield), as the race route runs Westward up Sunset from Broad Street, South down the entire length of "Big Forest" Avenue, and then back down the hill on Osborne.
Expect traffic Delays on Ridgewood Avenue, there will be police officers there to assist in directing you to your location. All the streets East of Ridgewood from the Country Club south to Osborne will be subject to Closure and Parking Restrictions and all the nearby streets will be much more congested than normal.
The Borough has advised drivers to use Belleville Avenue or Watchung Avenue as alternate routes into Bloomfield.
