“Services after 9 a.m. will experience significantly less delay, due to runners either being out of the downtown area or spread out enough to have minimal impact on drivers. Parishioners are encouraged to consider altering their usual routes to church, using Chestnut Expressway and National Avenue to Walnut Street to access downtown destinations,” city leaders said in a social media post.
