With the Rock & Roll Half-Marathon starting at 8 a.m. Sunday morning followed by the Eagles’ home opener at 1 p.m., Sunday promises to be a busy day on Philadelphia roadways.

The Half-Marathon will bring over 22,000 runners to the streets of Philadelphia, winding through the Art Museum area, historical downtown Philadelphia and along the Schuylkill River.

Road closures for the Half-Marathon will take effect around 7:30 a.m., with police implementing “soft” closures throughout the entire course. As participants begin to traverse the course, each affected road will re-open as the last participants complete their run on a particular street. Listed are some of the major closures.
