Swimmers from around the city will be diving into the Nakoma Country Club pool for the All City Swim Meet that starts Thursday, and officials say traffic may be a concern.
More than 1,900 swimmers and 4,000-5,000 spectators are expected to attend the summer tradition that?s now in its 53rd year.
Parking may be at a premium for the near west side meet, but traffic officers will be on hand to help with congestion and ensure the safety of swimmers and spectators.
On-street parking is suggested on Nakoma Road, Seminole Highway, Mandan Crescent, Manitou Way and Cherokee Drive, according to a release. Peak times for swimmer drop-offs will be from 7-8 a.m. and from 12-1 p.m.
Traffic changes in effect from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday:
