This weekend’s Lake Superior Performance Rally will cause some road closures around the region.
Only one of those will affect downtown Houghton. That will be the ceremonial closing stage tomorrow afternoon…
Houghton police Lieutenant Nick Roberts says officers will be in place to facilitate shopping at lower level businesses affected by the closing…
The final stage is scheduled to begin just after 5:00 tomorrow, and the public is invited to watch.
Other closings will be posted on the rural roads used for the stages later today and tomorrow.
Officials encourage you to respect the closings. If an unauthorized person or vehicle is spotted on a road during a stage, that stage must be abandoned.
There are designated spectator areas where you can view the race. Officials ask that you use the directions they have provided in the spectator guide to get to them. Following GPS directions could lead you on to the course.
