Amateur rowers will take to the Schuylkill River Saturday bringing a road closure to adjacent Kelly Drive.

The Kelly Drive through Fairmount Park will be detoured for the 2016 Schuylkill River Regatta Saturday. A 1-1/2 mile stretch of Kelly Drive from Strawberry Mansion Drive to Fountain Green Drive will be closed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., said Philadelphia Police. 

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.
