Expect heavy traffic Saturday thanks to colors, race

A reprieve from the winter-like temperatures and a popular running tradition could make your commute through Door County feel like a festival weekend.


The National Weather Service is predicting temperatures in the 60s, a far cry from the mid-30-degree temperatures we saw earlier in the week that caused it to snow in some parts of the area.


The Travel Wisconsin Fall Color Report has Door County at 100 percent peak, which could also bring additional traffic to the area for those looking for one last glimpse of the changing leaves. Most of the state is either at peak or past it according to the most updated entries in the report.


It is also a big weekend for runners as over 100 solo participants and 400 teams plan on tackling the Fall 50 course that stretches from Gills Rock to Sunset Park in Sturgeon Bay. Area highways and side roads will remain open to traffic, but motorists can expect some spots to be crowded because of support vehicles and spectators.
