Early start for marathon means early start for road closure

Posted by Martin Finucane March 15, 2007 12:12 PM


The earlier start time for next month's Boston Marathon will lead to an earlier closure of Route 135 in Ashland.

This year's race will start at 10 a.m. rather than noon, with Route 135 at the Hopkinton-Ashland line closing at 7:30 a.m., and the rest of 135 closed throughout Ashland until about noon.

Further updates on road closures will be posted at the Ashland Police Department's website at ashlandpd.org.
