Arlington Heights Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 1-8 p.m. Saturday for the duration of that day's racing events. The roadway will not be closed on Sunday, said Elk Grove Police Sgt. Matt Fiorito with the traffic department.

Landmeier Road between Tonne and Arlington Heights Road also will be restricted to eastbound traffic on Saturday during racing hours.

Tonne Road will be shut down in major directions for much of the weekend.

On Sunday, due to a change in the race route, John F. Kennedy Boulevard will be closed from noon-6 p.m. in both directions.

Visitors to Rainbow Falls Water Park will have restricted access during Sunday's women's and men's pro circuit races.

The detour entrance for the park will be through the Elk Grove High School parking lot after noon Sunday.

"They can enter normally prior to that road closure," Fiorito said.
