Race to affect traffic, parking on April 6

The Margate City Police Department is advising residents of parking and traffic restrictions scheduled for 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 6, due to a half-marathon that will go through the city.

No parking will be allowed on the south side (beach side) of Atlantic Avenue, the entire length of the city. Any vehicles left in the no-parking zone will be towed, police said. Atlantic Avenue eastbound will be restricted to one lane only. Margate Police also ask drivers to avoid Atlantic Avenue if possible and use an alternate route.
