If you're already scheming how to park as close to the finish line as possible, forget it. Broad Street between Belvidere and Lombardy along with Franklin and Monument will be closed to cars on race morning, so pull out your bike and beat the traffic the old fashion way. But if you're bent on driving, park east of Belvidere for best availability, either on the streets or in one of the lots.
