Before we give you the low-down on road closures for the Bix 7 this weekend, a reminder to come and hang out with us at the Rock 'n' Roll Mansion this Saturday! Bring the kids, park your car, have some drinks and fun, and have the best view of the 48th running of the Bix 7.

The 48th running of the Bix 7 is happening Saturday, July 30th. The race starts at 8 a.m. that Saturday morning. Starting on Thursday but mainly Friday, the City of Davenport will be preparing for the Bix 7 and closing down streets to do so. On Wednesday, the City of Davenport released the full map of road closures in downtown Davenport to get everyone prepared.

The first road closures will begin on Thursday evening for the Brady Street Sprints. Last year, Brady Street from W 4th St. to Palmer Dr. was closed for those sprints and we can expect the same this year.
