The largest collegiate rowing competition in the country returns to the shores and waters of the Schuylkill River this weekend and that means a major thoroughfare will be closed to motorists.

The Kelly Drive is the major closure for the 2013 Dad Vail Regatta.

A 1-1/2 mile stretch of Kelly Drive was closed at 1 a.m. Thursday and will remain closed between Strawberry Mansion Drive and Fountain Green Drive until the regatta wraps up around 8 p.m. Saturday.

Entrance to the regatta zone is by permit only so all other traffic will be detoured onto other routes including Strawberry Mansion, Fountain Green and Reservoir Drives.

Expect potential delays on other Schuylkill River arteries like the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) and the Martin Luther King Drive the next few days.
