9/11 Ride Friday Will Bring Some Traffic Changes

August 13th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

On Friday, August 16, 2019, at approximately 8:30 a.m., America’s 911 Ride, sponsored by the America’s 911 Foundation Incorporated, will arrive in Cumberland.  This year marks the 18th year anniversary of the ride traveling through Cumberland.  The America’s 911 Ride will enter Cumberland via the Narrows, Route 36, and continue south on Mechanic Street turning left onto Interstate 68 East Bound.  The riders will then travel Interstate 68 East to the Willowbrook Rd exit. They will then take Willowbrook Road to Allegany College of Maryland.  The riders will take a small break at the College when they depart and travel Willowbrook Road back onto Interstate 68 East out of the City Limits.

Traffic will be stopped temporarily on the main route and all intersecting routes through the downtown area to prevent other traffic from impeding with the riders.  These stoppages will occur at approximately 8:30a.m. – 9:00 a.m. in preparation of the riders’ arrival into Allegany County and Cumberland.  Citizens who live and work in Cumberland should expect delays in traveling throughout parts of the city during the event.
