Main Street closure planned for Veterans Day events


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Veterans Day events on Saturday will require the closure of Main Street for much of the morning.

MainStreet Roswell’s Veterans Parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The Brave 5K run/walk, hosted by the Military Science Department of New Mexico Military Institute, will have its start at 7:30 a.m. that same day.

The parade will begin at Main and Fourth streets and head north to finish at the Wool Bowl on Grand Avenue after turning east off of Main Street at College Boulevard. The race/walk is scheduled to start and finish at Main and Fourth streets before the parade gets rolling.

Main Street will be closed between Third Street and College Boulevard from 6 a.m. to about 11 a.m. Saturday. As the run/walk, and later the parade, makes its way onto College Boulevard, traffic closures will also occur at the intersections of College Boulevard/Virginia Avenue and College Boulevard/Grand Avenue.

During the Saturday morning events on Main Street, Pecos Trails Transit southbound buses will detour to the west onto Pennsylvania Avenue between College Boulevard and Second Street. There is one established bus stop in front of Pioneer Bank at Fourth Street and Pennsylvania.

Northbound buses will be able to continue routes (with a detour onto Virginia Avenue between Second and Fifth streets) until the parade begins.

Bus drivers will attempt to stay on schedule, but could be slightly behind because of added traffic and detours related to the parade.
