Paving the way for runners' safety

CHAMPAIGN -- City workers are preparing the roads for this weekend's Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon.
CHAMPAIGN -- City workers are preparing the roads for this weekend's Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon. They're making sure runners don't get tripped up by potholes.

If one runner trips, it could cause a domino-effect, especially on some parts of the route when races are packed in tightly. That's why public works officials have been talking with race organizers to make sure the route stays safe.

Leaders say they've been filling in the gaps all week. Crews say it's important to make sure the roads are safe, but the marathon gives them an extra reason to smooth things over.

Crews are using three different treatments to make sure the holes are fixed and they plan to be on the lookout during the next few days to make sure they stay that way.
