Road closures in Elk Grove Thursday and Saturday

There are two events this week in Elk Grove that will require the closure of city streets. The Gobble Wobble on Thursday and the Dickens Street Faire on Saturday.

The Elk Grove Gobble Wobble, organized by Chicks in Crisis, offers Elk Grove runners and walkers a chance to burn off a few extra calories before the big feast with a 5K Family Fun Run on Thanksgiving morning, November 24. The route starts and finishes from Longleaf Drive.

To accommodate the event, road closures and alternative routes will be set up between the hours of 7:30 to 11:00 am. Roadways will be re-opened when runners clear the area. Holiday motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to plan accordingly.

Street Closures for Thursday, November 24:

  • Both directions of Longleaf Drive will be closed 
  • Laguna Spring Drive in both directions between Laguna Blvd and Elk Grove Blvd
  • Eastbound Laguna Blvd/Bond Road from Laguna Springs Drive to East Stockton Blvd
  • Northbound Highway 99 Bond Road off-ramp 
  • Both directions of East Stockton Blvd between Bond Road and Emerald Vista Drive

More than 2,000 runners have participated in previous Thanksgiving Day run events in the city. Register online.
