Route 109 from Cape May to Ocean Drive in Lower Township will be closed for several hours Sunday during the 16th annual Ocean Drive Marathon.

Police say motorists leaving Cape May will be diverted through West Cape May during the marathon, which is expected to last from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Motorists are advised to find alternate routes that avoid Ocean Drive during the marathon. The road will be reopened after the last runner and trolley have cleared the area.
